According to the latest KBC Bank Ireland / Chartered Accountants Ireland Business Sentiment Index, there was a marked step-up in Irish business activity levels in the past three months with more companies reporting output gains and fewer reporting reduced output than at any other time in the past nine years.
The KBC Bank Ireland / Chartered Accountants Ireland Business Sentiment Survey reflects the view of chartered accountants working in senior positions (CEOs, MDs and FDs) in Ireland’s leading companies.
The Autumn 2015 survey was conducted between 14th and 20th October and the results presented are based on 363 completed responses.
The Index increased to 130.8 from 123.6 in the previous quarter. This is the strongest reading since the survey began in late 2006. The results suggest the upswing has become more broadly based of late and firms are increasingly confident that this will continue in the final months of 2015.
