Invest NI today announced that details of legislative changes that may affect businesses in Northern Ireland have been posted on their nibusinessinfo.co.uk website www.nibusinessinfo.co.uk/ccd
The changes are all due to come into force on 1st October which is the second Common Commencement Date (CCD) of 2008. This event, which happens twice a year, is where key Government departments issue new regulations and make changes to existing ones.

Changes to legislation are expected to cover the following areas:
The national minimum wage
Occupational pension schemes
Employers’ liability compulsory insurance
Trade marks and trade mark applications
Limited liability partnerships
