IBE – Supporting Business Trade Internationally

If you are presently trading in the UK what thoughts are you giving to International Trade after Brexit? Presently, you have the freedom of the European Union but not for very much longer. The UK has voted to leave the European Union. It is scheduled to depart at 11pm UK time on Friday 29 March 2019.

If UK businesses are restricted to trading only in the UK that will cause half of them massive reductions on turnover. There are thousands of businesses who do not want to be locked out of International Trading. Are you one of these companies?

So, what are you doing to prevent loss of business?

Irish Business Enterprise is providing a “Get out of Jail” card for Brexit.  If you want to stay part of the EU after the UK has exited, then you need a business presence in another EU Country. This, then, gives you a passport to 26 other Countries.

Where better and more convenient for trading than Ireland. Travelling Liverpool/Dublin is a 40 min journey which costs less than £30 return. UK and Irish laws are very similar. We have a common language and even our culture has some similarities.

Interested?  If you wish to understand more about our “Get out of Jail” card, then come chat with us.  You will not find this info all over social media as our package is only for our IBE Members.  We are very happy to discuss it with interested parties.

Hanging about, wondering what will happen with Brexit, waiting for others to make decisions before you make a move is not the smart way to do business.  Be proactive, make your own move now.   As my colleague said, “Hope for the best but plan for the worst”!

IBE provides top business to business services for companies across Merseyside and Ireland who wish to work alongside us. Essentially, we support businesses with Irish connections throughout the region by helping them to generate business opportunities for each other.

Our dedicated team provides a range of extensive business support services, including introductions to potential clients.  There’s no extra  charging in the way of commission or a finder’s fee. We also use our “invitation only” events to introduce you to businesses you haven’t previously met. IBE has a proven track record of assisting businesses across a wide variety of sectors and industries.

The Target Market

“As an Irish business person, naturally the affairs of the Irish business community have always been close to my heart. What’s more, I’ve always done my level best to support initiatives. However, one development above all convinced me that I had to do more. A while back I was invited by two local Irish Charity fundraising events on the same evening. How bad was that!

The sad thing was, I and everybody else at either event – would have happily attended both events – given the chance. Not being WonderWoman I can’t manage two places at once! There and then, I was convinced that the Irish Business Community had to get organised, to get its act together.

IBE is the forum to do exactly this. We can help companies and organisations, large and small, to work together, support each other, and derive mutual benefits from building relationships

I hope you’ll join us and realise the undoubted benefits for your own business.”
Agnes Fitzgerald, Co-founder and Director

Liverpool and Ireland. A connection going back centuries

A quick glance at a map tells you a lot. A brief look through the history books tells you the rest. Liverpool’s links with Ireland run deep indeed – economically, politically, and socially. There’s scarcely a family on Merseyside without an Irish connection. For more evidence, take a look at the sporting roll of honour, studded to this day with names like Gerrard, Rooney and Carragher.

What does it mean to you, as a local, or indeed Irish, business person?
It’s no secret that business works better when people get on, when there’s common ground, common history, shared passions and outlooks. At no time is this more important than when you need to break the ice, such as at a networking event.

What’s more, there are no people warmer, more open or more welcoming than the Irish. A good deal has been inherited by the Merseysiders in their DNA. Together, we’re stronger than ever as you’ll discover as an IBE Member.
