Budget 2018 Highlights

Budget 2018 was announced today Tuesday, October 10 by the new Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe.


Budget 2018 – The Highlights

The Budget 2018 did not bring any surprises from an Income Tax point of view. We predicted an increase to the 20% rate band and changes to certain tax credits. This prediction was realised.

We believed there may be  a combined PRSI and USC rate but this has only been put in to the planning stages with a reduced USC rate and increased threshold in the meantime.

There were surprises with regard to a significant increase in commercial property stamp duty and the charitable VAT refund scheme. Other than that the Budget was relatively uneventful and brought in very few tax changes.
