Jul 27, 2020

On Friday afternoon last, the Department of Finance published the Financial Provisions (Covid-19) (No. 2) Bill 2020 and Explanatory Memorandum which underpin the measures announced by the Government in the July Jobs Stimulus on Thursday.

The Irish Government’s July Jobs Package 2020 reflects many of the proposals included in our position paper “The Next Financial Year: Making Irish Business More Competitive”,  which was distributed to all Oireachtas members and relevant government departments earlier this month. The Bill is scheduled to be debated this Wednesday before the Dáil takes a six-week break on Thursday.
