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 seventh seminar Developing Your Cross Border Business took place on the 8th March 2012 in the Bee Park Resource Centre, Manorhamilton from 10am – 2pm. This event was aimed at businesses based in the border region or businesses who work across the border and covered 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 were among those who attended. Feedback from the speakers and participants was invaluable in helping us to shape the content of the Border People website as we continue to develop.
