Budget 2016: A Step in the Right Direction For Business and Consumers
North Kildare Chamber today (13/10/2015) welcomes Government’s commitment in Budget 2016 to support our entrepreneurs and businesses.
Commenting on Government’s Budget announcement today, Allan Shine, Chief Executive of North Kildare Chamber, said: “At long last, we have a budget that tangibly recognises that entrepreneurs and small businesses are the drivers of economic growth. This is a vitally important statement for now and for the future”.
“Two particularly welcome measures are the first steps towards putting the self-employed on an equal footing with the PAYE worker, and Government’s commitment to address the high costs of childcare. These important measures will help businesses in Kildare and will support our indigenous economic development.”
“The reduction of CGT from 33% to 20% will equally support investment into high-potential Irish businesses and reward our entrepreneurs and job creators. As we face the challenge of further reducing unemployment, particularly youth unemployment, this measure will support entrepreneurs to grow their business and get people into work”.
Shine concluded by saying, “Our budget briefing tomorrow morning with PWC will highlight all aspects of Budget 2016 and the impact it will have on business”.
