CPA report to advise Government on helping entrepreneurs

A major report aimed at creating a new Government policy to help people start up their own businesses and create jobs is being launched today.

Leading figures from the banking and business sectors as well as entrepreneurs contributed to the report, which was carried out by the Certified Public Accountants (CPA) in Ireland.

CPA chief executive Eamon Siggins has revealed that the report identifies serious challenges for those wishing to start up businesses, but that it also "looks at a series of low-cost or no-cost practical initiatives the Government can take to address the situation".
