Belfast Chamber of Trade and Commerce

Belfast Chamber has announced a package of support to help local businesses to prepare for Brexit. In conjunction with professional services firm Grant Thornton, Belfast Chamber is offering businesses the opportunity to learn more about how Brexit might impact their business and what they could do to mitigate against any negative effects through a series of free webinars, workshops and one to one consultations.

Commenting, the organisation’s Chief Executive Simon Hamilton said, “Belfast Chamber recently surveyed its members about their views on Brexit. A strong theme throughout was that many businesses felt they weren’t properly prepared for the UK’s exit from the European Union and particularly for the possibility of a ‘No Deal’ outcome.

Belfast Chamber has secured funding through the Government’s Business Readiness Fund to run a series of free webinars, workshops and one to one consultations for local businesses to hear from and work with expert Brexit advisers from Grant Thornton who can advise them about how Brexit could effect their business and what they can do in response. The events which any business can register for will focus on issues like customs, taxation, supply chains, finance and HR issues.
