The Minister for Business is to write to 220,000 companies all over the country to highlight the need for the them to take urgent action to protect their businesses against the risks posed by Brexit.
The letters will be issued through the Companies Registration Office and will tell firms about the supports that are available to help them get ready for the UK's exit from the EU.
Heather Humphrey’s department will also be advertising the supports on various websites, including CRO.ie and RBO.gov.ie.
The moves are part of an intensification by the Government of efforts to coax businesses here to get ready for October 31, when the UK may crash out of the EU if no deal is reached in the meantime.
The Government is also drawing people’s attention to the 'Getting your Business Brexit Ready – Practical Steps’ booklet which outlines 9 key steps that businesses should take to ensure they are fully prepared for a no-deal.
