The Irish economy is back in full recovery mode and key economic metrics suggest a lucrative and rapidly growing foreign market for UK exporters. Indeed, the UK exported more than £18 billion
in goods to Ireland in 2014.
Ireland is extremely receptive to the UK, its closest neighbour and by far biggest trading partner, but doing business in Ireland has challenges.
While Irish industrial practices have been utterly transformed over the past couple of decades, with levels of professionalism and innovation markedly improved thanks to prolonged membership of the EU and massive inward investment from Tier 1 US enterprises, there remains a small rump of problematic companies.
If you are considering doing business in Ireland you need a reliable local partner to validate your prospects and, most importantly, collect on your debtors.
StubbsGazette is Ireland’s leading credit bureau and debt collection agency
and as a brand has extraordinary resonance and brand recognition with Irish business and public alike.
StubbsGazette the print publication first appeared in 1828 and since then has been synonymous with all aspects of the credit cycle.The company has evolved to a comprehensive online database/credit rating bureau and in 2008 extended its franchise by moving into the debt collection business with hugely impressive results
. For any UK exporter it offers an unrivalled single source and local insight for customer vetting, the credit decision and, ultimately, debt collection.
Indeed, many UK exporters and Irish companies and have already good reason to be grateful for their association with StubbsGazette. Here is just a small sample:
