The Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, supported by Limerick City and County Council, will host a half-day event, called ‘Taking Care of Business’ in The Strand Hotel, on Tuesday March 11th.

The free event will feature advice and information on the supports available from enterprise agencies and Local Authorities; access to Finance programmes; requirements for food and environmental safety; tax, employment and Health & Safety obligations; and requirements for setting up and running a business.

Minister for Small Business, John Perry TD, explained the event is specifically targeted at people thinking of starting a business as well as existing small business owners and managers. “This will also be a great opportunity for the Limerick business community to ask questions and raise individual concerns.”

Speaking ahead of the event, Oliver O’Loughlin, Director of Services for Economic Development & Planning, Limerick City and County Council stated: “The event will feature two separate strands running concurrently with presentations from State bodies in one area and information stands manned by staff from these bodies in a separate area of the Strand Hotel’s conference facility. The concise presentations will focus on assistance available to help entrepreneurs develop their businesses and key regulatory requirements.”

Among the numerous State bodies and offices participating in the event is Enterprise Ireland, Revenue Commissioners, Local CEBs, Micro-Finance Ireland, Credit Review Office, Competition Authority, EPA, HSA, Companies Registration Office, Office of Government Procurement, Equality Authority, NSAI and the Food Safety Authority of Ireland.
