Dundalk Chamber of Commerce in association with Eures Cross Border Partnership held a very successful Breakfast Briefing on Tax Rules for Cross Border workers and Employers in the Ballymascanlon Hotel on Wednesday 12th June in the Ballymascanlon Hotel. Guest speaker was Rose Tierney of Tierney Tax Consultancy and Orla Rafferty of Orla Rafferty Ltd.

Eures Cross Border Partnership supports the Cross- Border Worker, Jobseeker and Employer.

The event was a huge success with over 100 delegates in attendance. The speaker covered such topics as redundancy payments, pensions lump sums, tax relief on pension contributions and tax requirements for the cross- border worker. Their speeches covered the implications for employers who employ cross border workers. In her speech Rose covered the implications for employers with staff members who work in both jurisictions and social insurance benefits and pensions in a cross- border situation. There were questions from the floor and the speakers were experts in their fields.

Aidan Callan of Skillnet Ireland also launched the Skillnet Programme and informed attendees of his upcoming training programmes and the support he can give SME’s either with in house training or public training.

Pat McCormick President Dundalk Chamber was delighted with the attendance and stated that Rose’s and Orla’s speeches were very detailed and helped to answer some of the queries faced by Cross Border workers and Employers. A booklet was given to all attendees at the event with a list of relevant questions and answers and a copy can be obtained free from Dundalk Chamber by calling Brenda on Tel: 042 9336343 or email brenda@dundalk.ie

This is just one of many Eures Cross Border events that Dundalk Chamber of Commerce has hosted in the last few years with more planned for the future.
