Chambers Ireland calls on Government to announce three months rates holiday

At a meeting of Chambers chief executives, by conference call, it was noted that disruption to the national and global economy occurring at pace. Our EU and other trading partners are taking heroic efforts to maintain employment and continuity within their business sectors.

To protect the long-term sustainability and competitiveness of Irish businesses the Chambers network calls for government to recognise the unique nature of the shock our economy is experiencing as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, by foregoing Local Authority Rates and supplementing the budgets of Local Authorities by the amount foregone.

It is essential that, for the next three months:

  • Local Authorities Rates are cancelled, and,
  • That government provides extraordinary funding to Local Authorities from the Central Fund.

What Our Members Say

“Tom Murphy Car Sales Ltd has been a member of Waterford Chamber of Commerce for over 25 years. It’s a membership that serves us well as we find it gives us a platform to interact with similar businesses and puts us in front of a wide audience. Having staged a number of very successful Chamber events, both at our dealership on the Cork Road and at venues chosen by the Chamber, it really puts into perspective the value of networking and meeting with potential customers face to face. We intend to continue the partnership between Waterford Chamber of Commerce and Tom Murphy Car Sales into the future, as the results speak for themselves and we see the value in being a member of Waterford Chamber.”
