The Irish shadow economy is extremely damaging to business and consumers alike.

Revenue have seized 24,000 Cigarettes worth €16,400 in Wexford. The shadow economy is not only detrimental to the exchequer, but highly damaging to the industry and retailers alike. Indigenous SME’s are the backbone of the Irish economy. #Newstalk

We are disappointed that Government has ignored the concerns voiced by industry and retailers and increased excise duty by 50c. Revenue’s own Illegal Tobacco Survey showed that the cigarette black market is up 30% since 2016 - today's increase will worsen the problem. #Budget2020
