Welcome to another edition of the O’Donovan Lavin quarterly Newsletter.

The business outlook is improving and entrepreneurial activity is increasing. There remain however in our view barriers to increased activity in the SME Sector which need to be addressed by Banks and Government which we believe are hindering further growth and expansion.

The Election is now over and we hope that a new Government will introduce policy to improve the funding environment for Entrepreneurs and also introduce legislation to provide support to employers, similar to those which exist for employees, in the event of business failure.

We trust that you will continue to find the articles in our Newsletter to be helpful and informative.

Please do contact us if you wish to discuss any of the issues raised or check the news section of our website www.odonovanlavin.ie.

From all the Team at O’Donovan Lavin we hope that your business experiences growth and success in 2016.
