Bira CEO meets with Paul Scully to discuss rising business running costs

Bira CEO Andrew Goodacre met with Paul Sculley, Business Minister, last week. Andrew expressed concerns to the Minister regarding the rising costs of running a business and urged the government to do more to help businesses overcome these challenges.

Andrew said “the increasing costs of running a business are like a tsunami that will overwhelm many business owners. Energy is increasing by 150-200%, rates have increased by 100%, labour costs are up 10% due to NMW and NI. Some of this is beyond government control but more must be done to ease the burdens”
