Taking Care of Business 2018

September 25th - 25th

Time: 8:00am - 2:00pm

Location: Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, Limerick

A Government of Ireland initiative, Taking Care of Business will bring more than 25 State bodies and services together to offer advice to small businesses in the Mid-West

This half-day event is specifically targeted at people thinking of starting a business as well as small business owners and managers. In the context of Brexit, it is also an opportunity for businesses to seek advice from a range of experts on how to diversify and expand into new markets.

An initiative of the Government of Ireland, and run by Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation in conjunction with the Health and Safety Authority and the Food Safety Authority of Ireland, Taking Care of Business will bring together more than 25 State bodies, agencies and units, and builds on the success of previous events in recent years, which have been attended by approximately 2,500 people from across the country.

The event will have two separate strands:


  • In one part of the conference suite, State bodies will give presentations focusing on the key regulatory requirements for operating a business in Ireland, as well as on the supports available to help entrepreneurs develop their businesses;


  • Meanwhile in another part of the conference suite, staff from the State bodies will welcome business people to information stands, talking directly to attendees and answering any questions they may have.

The State offices and agencies represented will provide information across a wide range of areas, including:

  • Tax, employment, and Health & Safety obligations;
  • Legal requirements for setting up and running a business;
  • Requirements in areas such as food and environmental safety;
  • Advice on government procurement and intellectual property;
  • Assistance and supports from enterprise agencies, and;
  • Brexit, and the kind of help and supports that are available, including the Brexit Loan Scheme, will be covered.
