With regard to Question No. 98 of 17 October 2013, the Deputy will recall that, at the time, I responded that due to the significant volume of information to be gathered and collated, that it was not possible to collate the information required in the timeframe given. I am now in a position to reply to the Question and I extend my apologies for the delay in doing so.

Enterprise Ireland and IDA Ireland are legally precluded from supplying the number of applications or approval figures. Therefore, the data provided by the Agencies is based on payments made.

Tables 1 and 2 accompanying this reply provide the payment amounts, the number of companies paid by year, together with the breakdown by region in respect of payments made by Enterprise Ireland. Table 3 provides information in respect of payments made to companies by IDA Ireland on a county basis. The payments referred to in these three tables cover the period 2010 to 2012 inclusive. Figures for 2013 will be available later this year.

For the Deputy’s information, I have also included in Table 4, the Regional Aid Rates as defined under the Regional Aid Guidelines, by size of company and location.
