Businesses deemed to be “vulnerable but viable” in the wake of a no-deal Brexit will be targeted for supports in a new initiative set to be announced in the budget.
State supports will be offered to support both the businesses themselves as well as their workers under a plan being worked on jointly by Minister for Business Heather Humphreys and Minister for Social Protection Regina Doherty.
