Financial Supports
Resources for helping businesses with finance during COVID-19

It is unlikely in the current environment that any business can continue to operate exactly as before. It is also very likely that important actions will need to be taken in order to survive through this period. Some of these actions may prove very difficult and unpalatable for business owners. They may include anything from scaling down production to temporary lay-off of employees. Relationships with staff, suppliers and customers may become strained.

And yet, not making difficult decisions may jeopardise the future of the business and may threaten the post-Covid recovery process. So it is extremely important to make the right decisions and to take the correct actions and to do so as soon as possible. Delayed decision-making is poor decision-making.

There are a significant number of supports available from a variety of state agencies in order to bring stability to your business. Enterprise Ireland outline the key steps to managing liquidity through this crisis.
