My Irish week

This week was my Irish week.

Yesterday I was invited at the Irish embassy to St Patrick’s day. I had quite a lot of fun. I had the opportunity to meet my friends, Desmond McGetrick from DMCG CONSULTING, Jean-Charles Moczarski for Enterprise Ireland and Tim Craye from 01 ACCOUNTING SERVICES LTD.

And today I attended the “Brexit, Ireland, and Europe of 27” conference organized by the Irish embassy and the Jacque Delors institute. I heard Simon Coveney, the Irish deputy Prime Minister for foreign affairs and Alexandre Holroyd, member of the French National Assembly for citizens abroad.

It was fascinating to hear the Irish view on the hashtag#brexit and hashtag#Europe in general.

Speeding and parking fines can be very dangerous to a company.

The employer and the company may be prosecuted in case of non-reporting road offense committed by an employee.

Employers must “denounce” employees who commit road traffic offenses with a company vehicle, under penalty of fine.

The court of cassation considers that if the employer can be prosecuted for failing to meet the obligation to appoint, so can the company.

The major difference is that the fine for a company is 5 times that of the fine for an individual.

Be vigilant it can cost up to 3750€ per fine.
