On 31 March 2017-- Enterprise Ireland launched the ‘Brexit SME Scorecard’, a new interactive online platform which can be used by all Irish companies to
self-assess their exposure to Brexit under six business pillars. Based on answers supplied by the user, the Scorecard generates an immediate report which contains suggested actions and resources, and information on events for companies to attend, to prepare for Brexit. The platform can be accessed here.
As part of the #PrepareforBrexit campaign, Enterprise Ireland will run a series of Brexit events featuring expert speakers, throughout the country in May to promote the tool and encourage clients to prepare for Brexit.
Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Mary Mitchell O’Connor TD said “Maintaining close trading relationships between the UK and EU/Ireland and minimising the regulatory burden for goods transiting the UK are two of the Government’s priorities in the negotiations which will now take place following the triggering of Article 50. At company level, however,time is of the essence for Irish companies to become Brexit ready, in order to curtail and mitigate against market turbulence. The Brexit SME Scorecard is a starting point to help businesses to begin preparing a strategy and ready their teams in terms of planning, shining a spotlight on some of the key operational areas that may be exposed. The UK continues to be Ireland’s main trading partner and the aim is to uphold these strong trade relations and equip Irish companies to strengthen their collaborations while also preparing them to look at diversifying into new international markets.”
