October 8th 11:00-12:00

Part of Invest Northern Ireland’s EU Exit Webinar Series.

With Northern Ireland set to follow EU VAT rules for goods from 1 January 2021 as laid down by the Northern Ireland protocol, the new VAT landscape and its impact on supply chains must be considered by local business, particularly given its ability to create a divergence in VAT rules between Northern Ireland and Great Britain.

In partnership with Invest NI, Michael McNeill from PwC will provide an overview of the current rules and regulation, the latest information released by the European Union and the UK Government, and recommendations of what businesses can do to mitigate operational impact and adapt to these changes to VAT. Michael will also take your questions.

You can submit your question at registration.
