As part of the Government’s €5 billion July Stimulus, I announced a new €20 million Ready for Customs support scheme. Enterprise Ireland is rolling out the scheme to help businesses prepare for the new challenges of trading with and through the UK. This scheme provides grants of up to €9,000 to help businesses as they recruit and build staff expertise in customs processes and to provide for related investment in relevant ICT.

To date, a total of 13 businesses in Co. Cavan have applied for the Ready for Customs grant, while a total of 19 businesses in Co. Monaghan have applied for the grant.
