Join us for the first in our upcoming member-only Brexit Webinar series.

These fortnightly events will update members on the latest from the UK’s negotiations with the EU and take an in-depth look at areas of interest to ADS sectors to help members best prepare for the end of the Transition Period at the end of 2020.

Despite the focus on COVID-19 at a national, regional and business level in recent months, it is difficult to miss that Brexit is now back on the agenda, and this is especially the case for the Northern Ireland (NI) Protocol.

Join us and EY experts Sally Jones and David Reaney as they talk us through the implications of Brexit and the NI Protocol on businesses operating in Northern Ireland and those trading with Northern Irish businesses. Discussion topics will include.

  • An overview of what the Northern Ireland (NI) Protocol is.
  • The key future changes for businesses in comparison to how they operate today.
  • The actions businesses can take now to prepare for changes.
  • Any unknowns and areas awaiting clarification
