Chambers Ireland Press Release                           4 September 2018

Exchequer Returns signal importance of prudence in Budget 2019


Commenting on the release of today’s (4 September 2018) Fiscal Monitor, Ian Talbot, Chief Executive of Chambers Ireland said,

“The results from today’s Exchequer Returns indicate that Budget 2019 must be a prudent one.

Considering these returns alongside the economic uncertainties facing us from a variety of external factors, we urge Government to ensure that Budget 2019 is not a free-for-all.

The message from business is clear: the commitments on infrastructure and investment made in Project Ireland 2040 must be delivered upon.

Additionally, Government must look at measures that will work to increase labour market participation in Budget 2019, such as increasing investment in childcare, while also seeking to bolster our economy in the final runup to Brexit and ensuring that we enhance competitiveness in a sustainable manner.

With strong performance in corporate tax receipts - again above profile - we would stress the importance of avoiding over-reliance on this income stream, and we recommend that any receipts that are above profile be allocated to the Rainy Day Fund. This measure should ensure the sustainability of funding for large-scale infrastructure projects under Project Ireland 2040 should GDP growth fall in the future.

Overall, we should be cautiously optimistic in our approach to Budget 2019, planning for growth while preparing for challenges.”

The annual Chambers Ireland Economic Survey 2019, in collaboration with Eurochambres, is now open and will run until the 28 September.

The survey takes no more than 2 minutes to complete and we encourage Chamber members to complete same. 

The survey is available at - https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SWMM929


Department of Business, Enterprise & Innovation – Brexit Preparedness Notices

Efforts are currently underway to reach an agreement to ensure the withdrawal of the UK from the EU occurs with minimum disruption and to put in place a framework for a future relationship which will enable the closest possible EU-UK relationship post Brexit.

However, the UK’s notification of its intention to withdraw from the EU has created significant uncertainties. The European Commission has therefore sought to clarify what the situation will be for a number of business sectors in the event that no agreement is reached to mitigate the impacts of the UK’s withdrawal.

Notices have been issued in respect of industrial products, company law, trademarks, auditing and import and export licenses as well as a range of other areas. A list of the notices published to date are available to view on the Commission’s website at the following link: 

European Commission Brexit Preparedness

The Department of Business, Enterprise & Innovation (DBEI) is encouraging firms to review these notices and consider relevant actions that may be required to mitigate any potential negative impacts that may arise for them in terms of Brexit.

If you have any queries regarding these Brexit Preparedness Notices or the industrial sector which your business operates in, with regards to preparing for Brexit, please contact our EU & International Affairs Manager Emma Kerins, via her email address: Emma.Kerins@chambers.ie
