Small Firms Association welcomes extension of Government supports

December 09, 2021

SFA Director, Sven Spollen-Behrens said: “The announcement from Ministers Pascal Donohue and Michael McGrath this morning of an extension of Covid supports will be welcomed by many in the small firm’s community. We are gratified that the Ministers have listened to the calls from the small business community and have now accepted the need for the extension of the EWSS at full rate for a further two months.

“The extension of the CRSS and the commercial rates waiver is also very welcome. Many businesses find themselves back in a situation of restrictions which they did not want. All businesses would prefer to be trading but this not being the case, Government intervention is crucial”, Mr. Spollen-Behrens concluded.
