Gorey business awards

Gorey Chamber has announced that the third round of their Quarterly Business Award 2014 is now underway.

CEO of Gorey Chamber Dick White says that there will be a particular focus in this quarter. 'We have decided to focus on the Retail Sector this time around,' said Dick.

'In keeping with our structure, we'll have two very separate exercises with a Nomination and Selection process. So for now we are asking each and every business in North Wexford to take a couple of minutes to nominate a business currently operating in the Retail sector.'

Nominations were officially opened at Gorey Chamber's 'Lunch with the Chamber @ The Kitchen' event and they are urging people to get their votes in now.

Businesses are urged to nominate a retail business by responding on the email address with the name of the business you wish to nominate and a few lines as to why you feel they deserve the award. Once all nominations are in place, a listing will be circulated from which the award winner will be selected.

The winner will officially be announced at the Lunch with the Chamber on September 9. This process is open to each and every business to make and Gorey Chamber are urging them to have their say as to who wins the award.


THE Revenue Commissioners are to probe credit and debit card transactions as part of a crackdown on businesses evading tax.

Data from companies which process transactions will be used for the first time to investigate if payments are being declared to the taxman.

The blitz involves comparing so-called 'merchants acquirers' data gleaned from companies which process payments against turnover reported to the Revenue Commissioners.

If the figures did not match, it would 'raise a concern' and could result in a business being audited.

Some €28bn was spent on credit and debit cards last year, figures from the Irish Payment Services Organisation (IPSO) show, involving more than 341 million transactions. Some 5.5 million cards are in circulation.

Separate figures for County Wexford were not available.
