Business sentiment among Ireland’s accountants has plummeted – they are now
twice as pessimistic about Ireland’s business climate than they were six months
ago, according to the latest
Business Barometer Survey shows.
The barometer found that over 40% of CPA members surveyed have seen a
worsening in the business climate compared with 20% in the previous poll.
Nearly half (49%) believe that this disimprovement will continue into 2008.
Despite this negative mood, accountants continued to strongly endorse the
current government with 33% of respondents declaring they will vote for
Ireland’s governing party Fianna Fail
and the PDs.
