Enterprise Minister Batt O'Keeffe claims a decision to scrap the need to reprint headed notepaper with new names each time companies change directors will save businesses more than €13m annually.
It follows the new guidelines established by the Director of Corporate Enforcement Paul Appleby's office that relax the requirement to produce new headed notepaper every time directors are changed. This is part of a wider plan to cut the red-tape burden on businesses by 25pc by 2012.
