THE free flow of goods and ser­vices around Ire­land will be cru­cial fol­low­ing Brexit, a group rep­re­sent­ing char­tered ac­coun­tants has told the North­ern Ire­land Of­fice (NIO).

Char­tered Ac­coun­tants Ul­ster So­ci­ety pre­sented the find­ings of re­search on busi­ness at­ti­tudes to Brexit dur­ing their meet­ing at Stor­mont House with Colin Perry, NIO di­rec­tor for EU exit, legacy and econ­omy.

The group also dis­cussed the find­ings of re­search by Char­tered Ac­coun­tants Ire­land on the con­se­quences of the rein­tro­duc­tion of a cus­toms border on the is­land of Ire­land.

A spokesman said: “The im­por­tance of a free flow of goods and ser­vices on the is­land post-brexit and the dif­fi­cul­ties for busi­nesses, par­tic­u­larly agri-busi­nesses, in im­ple­ment­ing cus­toms du­ties were dis­cussed at the meet­ing.”

Char­tered Ac­coun­tants Ul­ster So­ci­ety will host a half-day Brexit con­fer­ence with Danske Bank on No­vem­ber 14. The con­fer­ence will ex­am­ine the key is­sues for busi­nesses and look at the steps which ma­jor com­pa­nies are tak­ing to meet the chal­lenges posed by Brexit.
