Growing Support for Irish SMEs
Support for Irish enterprise is at the heart of Dublin Chamber’s agenda. This year we compared the Irish and British tax environments to show that Ireland now lags behind the UK in 12 out of 16 metrics. We have called on Government to work towards a 20% Capital Gains Tax rate for unlisted firms, and suggested a number of more targeted measures that could be taken in 2020. These include changes to Entrepreneur Relief, the Key Employee Engagement Programme, SARP, and the R&D Tax Credit.
