JOIN THE SAVEJOBS CAMPAIGN

SaveJobs is a campaign dedicated to reducing the cost of doing business for  Irish SME business owners. We believe that the government should support entrepreneurs by easing regulations and lowering taxes. Join us today and make your voice heard!

SaveJobs is committed to advocating for SMEs. We are constantly working on new initiatives to reduce the cost of doing business and promote entrepreneurship. Check back soon for updates on our upcoming projects and how you can get involved.

National
Minimum 
Wage Reform

Tax 
Reform

Calculation of the minimum wage must reflect the fact that 48% of the workforce are employed by public service or multinationals, which enjoy far higher wages than the rest of us. At a minimum, public sector pay must be disregarded from calculations. Future increases in the NMW must not exceed CPI.

  • The 8.8% rate of PRSI must apply to the entirety of the National Minimum Wage, currently €495.30 per week.

  • The food service and grooming sectors require the permanent establishment of a 9% VAT rate. 

  • Our 23% standard VAT rate is too high and should revert to its historical 21% rate.

Industrial 
Relations 
Reform

  • SMEs employ 60% of the workforce, but have no representation in industrial relations matters with Government.

  • We require pro-rata representation on the Labour Employer Economic Forum (LEEF) and on the Low Pay Commission.

  • All legislation affecting labour and overhead costs for SMEs must be subject to the SME Test and regulatory impact assessment.
