Irish Times seek research feedback from SMEs

The Irish Times is seeking feedback from SMEs to hear views on how they will cope with the current lockdown.

With Tánaiste Leo Varadkar commenting this week that if he were a business owner he would be planning for this lockdown to last until the end of March, it seems that we are a long spell of Level 5  restrictions,  in an effort to contain the spread of Covid-19.

With non-essential retail closed, click-and-collect services cancelled, non-essential construction forbidden and the hospitality sector shuttered, small and medium sized businesses are facing a grim start to 2021.

The Irish Times would like to hear from SME businesses to find out, how is your business coping? Will your business be able to survive these restrictions in the coming weeks or months?  What impact is it having on your company’s finances, your own income, you personally, and your staff? Are the Government supports enough? What measures will you be taking to try to ensure your business remains trading?

Do you have suggestions for other businesses? What message would you like to send to customers?
