Entrepreneurship Reports

CPA Entrepreneurship Report II 2012

The CPA Ireland Entrepreneurship Report for 2012 was produced as a follow-up to the original report in 2010, to see how entrepreneurship is faring in Ireland two years on.

Recommendations from the 2010 report have been implemented since, but there are still challenges facing businesses in Ireland today. These include difficulties such as access to credit, cash flow and competing in a market dominated by multinational companies. However the report also revealed a much more positive attitude among business owners and entrepreneurs, possibly indicating that the end of the economic downturn may be in sight.

CPA Entrepreneurship Report I 2010

The CPA Ireland Entrepreneurship Report was first released in 2010 to provide an insight into the state of entrepreneurship in Ireland. In preparing that first report we spoke to entrepreneurs, industry representatives, state bodies, the banks, and our own members to obtain a snapshot of the landscape for enterprise in the country at the time.

The report highlighted the challenges facing entrepreneurs, including the economic downturn, the availability of credit and dealing with State bureaucracy. The report presented recommendations for actions the Government could take to improve these conditions and a number have become a reality. These include the recent introduction of the loan guarantee scheme, the excellent work which has been done in relation to the simplification of employment and industrial relations machinery, and the greater clarity which has been brought to the bank credit situation.
