Restrictions on movement have resulted in the temporary closure of many businesses. But many others remain open while taking increased health and safety precautions, or have moved online with employees working from home.

As a service provider to essential businesses that have remained open, QSI continue to be available to visit our clients while ensuring that we abide by their health and safety regimes. We are also available to clients over the phone, via email, and online. So we’re as ready as ever to meet the needs of our clients.

The current health emergency may be the first time that many businesses have had to seriously consider Business Continuity. QSI has experience with Business Continuity and we’re here to help companies to develop their Business Continuity Planning. QSI are approved consultants for Enterprise Ireland’s voucher scheme that is available to help companies with the cost of Business Continuity Planning. Click here for details.

Restart Grant: The new €250m Restart Grant provides direct grant aid to micro and small businesses to help them with the costs associated with reopening and reemploying workers following COVID-19 closures. The grant is available to businesses with a turnover of less than €5m employing up to 50 people, which were closed or impacted by at least a 25% projected reduction in turnover to the end of June 2020. The grants will be equivalent to the rates bill of the business in 2019, or a minimum grant of €2,000, with a maximum grant of €10,000. The application form is available online from all local authority websites.
