The Cross-Border Workers Coalition (CBWC) is a new alliance of individual employees who are resident in the Republic of Ireland but work in Northern Ireland.

The group originates from the North West region (Donegal / Derry) and represents employees who reside in the Republic of Ireland but are largely prohibited from remote working (or working from home) due to restrictive personal tax rules which impact cross border workers who work in Northern Ireland on a daily basis.

Set up in early 2020, the Coalition believes the opportunity is now right to make the legislative change for the benefit of thousands of cross border workers right across the ‘necklace’ region of the Republic of Ireland to allow them to work in the country that they reside without being exposed to a personal tax liability.
