TULLAMORE & District Chamber are hosting an event – ‘How to score in 2012: New funding opportunities for your Business’ - in conjunction with the Midlands Gateway Chamber (representing members of the three gateway chambers, Athlone, Tullamore and Mullingar) on Wednesday, May 23 in the Tullamore Court Hotel at 6pm.

The seminar will highlight to the business community and in particular the Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) sector, financing opportunities available for viable businesses, despite the difficult economic landscape.

Tullamore Chamber President, Joe O’Brien said “This event will deliver practical information on new ways to raise money for business, highlighting in particular the recently EU approved Employment Incentive Investment Scheme (EIIS).”

There have been a number of very successful business investment and expansion schemes operating in Tullamore that have brought both business expansion and direct employment to the area. The new scheme, which will grant tax relief of 41% over a 3 year period, is open to all trades with a few exceptions.

Ms Mary Cosgrove, a Tax Partner with the Tullamore accountancy firm Byrne, Casey & Associates, will share her knowledge of the EIIS and the opportunities for local businesses.

There will also be contributions from the Lir Investors - a Halo Business Angels Network in the midlands, and from AIB Bank. A questions and answers session will be accommodated after the presentations.
