The Centre for Cross Border Studies in partnership with the North South Ministerial Council Joint Secretariat manages the Border People website – www.BorderPeople.info. Border People provides an online signposting service for people who wish to move across the border to live, work or study. This website includes information on issues such as taxation, social security, job seeking, health, banking, education, housing and telecommunications.

As part of this initiative we hold regular seminars which address particular barriers to cross-border mobility which previously have included issues for cross-border workers, cross-border banking and consumer issues.

The fifth seminar Developing Your Cross Border Business took place on the 15 June 2011 in the Four Seasons Hotel, Monaghan from 9am – 2pm. This event organised in colaboration with Morgan McManus Solicitors Clones and the IBEC CBI Joint Business Council was aimed at businesses based in the border region or businesses who work across the border and will cover issues such as cross-border employment law; sourcing bank finance for a cross-border business; cross-border business taxes; debt-collection; accessing business grants in each jurisdiction; cross-border business succession and the public tendering and procurement procedure.

Frontier workers or organisations or individuals with an interest in specific aspects of cross-border employment are welcome to attend and your input would be most welcome.
