Budget 2014


#221

9% Tourism vat rate to stay


#222

Home renovation tax credit for homeowners of 13.5% of expenditure 5K to 13K for works done 2014+2015


#223

Sop to the building industry to get people off the dole and paying tax. It is estimated that 25% of those on the dole are former construction employees


#224

Extended the CGT on property exemption to 2014. Meddle meddle meddle.


#225

“All claims will have to be registered electronically with the Revenue Commissioners” to ensure tax compliance.
My hole. You will have to employ a builder with a tax clearance cert, but what’s to stop him paying lads in cash to do the actual work?


#226

Interesting, tax credit for people who re-invest money made from a GCT-able gain.


#227

thanks for the laugh anyway :laughing:


#228

Well, that makes it worth me delaying the work I was going to get done…


#229

I thought that the maximum expenditure for the home renovation scheme announced was €30k


#230

Indeed. It’s going to be a grim Christmas for builders…


#231

Could well have been. I may have misheard


#232

Capping of tax relief on private health insurance!!


#233

Dirt increase to 41% is to increase spending in the economy - just like I stated.


#234

cutting pension fund levy from 0.6% to 0.15%, from end of 2014.


#235

or maybe increase saving to compensate for reduced return. :wink:


#236

Instead of abolishing it which was promised - scum.


#237

For everyone? or just “higher earners”?


#238

Seems like everyone


#239

To be fair, he did say he was abolishing it. This is going to be a brand new levy! :smiley: :unamused:
