We are in acceleration mode and Ireland has taken its place as Europe's fastest growing economy

View The 2017 Annual Review

Many aspects of that recovery are demonstrated in our 2017 Annual Review. Last year was the first time in almost two decades more than 20,000 Companies were registered, up 8% on the previous year. Company insolvencies fell by a further 10%. In addition to this our Recovery Index shows a growing confidence among Irish consumers as our economy steadies its path to prosperity.

So while there is no doubt our recovery continues we are not invulnerable. Unpaid debt remains a concern with nearly ?117m per week lost to Irish Businesses in Bad Debt in 2017.

Full details are available in our 2017 Annual Review, a comprehensive analysis of business trends in Ireland today. To view the full report, simply click the link above.
