Invest NI helps businesses prepare for regulation changes

Sep 25, 2008

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.

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.  Some of these changes simplify existing legislation for businesses.  

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

  • Doorstep selling

As a free and impartial service led by Invest NI with information provided by Government departments, nibusinessinfo.co.uk is a clear and authoritative resource which helps businesses understand regulations that apply to them and how to comply.

Rodney McMullan, nibusinessinfo.co.uk manager, says: “Clear guidance on regulations is one of the many benefits businesses get from using nibusinessinfo.co.uk.  We know that this is important information which users value, particularly this alert on new regulations.”

Businesses of all sizes can also register to receive email alerts on the new regulation updates.
