Vat Registration and Bonds PDF Print E-mail
The Revenue Commissioners have started using Section 23A which was introduced in the 1992 Finance Act.  It's objective was for the Revenue to be able to seek security from a Trader for any VAT that might become due.  The security is in the form of a Bond which should be purchased from a Financial Institution. They are only supposed to be sought when it is clear that such action is for the protecion of Revenue. eg. Phoenix cases, cases with no establishment/ principals in the State.
 
National Pensions Framework PDF Print E-mail

The National Pensions Framework does not have any immediate effect on pension legislation.  It sets out the Governments intentions for changes in the pensions system over the coming 4 or 5 years.  They have said they will keep in mind the impact of changes on competitiveness and will only introduce changes when they are confident the time is right. 

To follow are the main points of interest;

- Retirement age will increase from 65 to 66 in 2014,  to 67 in 2021 and to 68 in 2025.

- Employers must operate a pension scheme for all employees.

- Employees will be automatically enrolled into the new pension scheme unless they are members of a defined benefit scheme or a defined contribution occupational pension scheme with a contribution rates equal to or greater than the minimum paid under the new scheme.

- The total contribution for this scheme will be 8%, with 4% paid by the employee, 2% paid by the state in the form of tax relief and 2% paid by the employer.

- Tax relief at 33% will replace the current system of marginal tax relief for pension contribution at the standard and higher rates of 20% and 41%.

 
Do you have a Company Pension and are you a Trustee? PDF Print E-mail
Most Irish limited companies that have an executive pension set up for it's Directors (and even employees) are in a situation whereby the Company is actually a Trustee of the Pension Scheme. This has been standard practice for a long time.  The pensions board now require all pension trustees to complete an online training course every two years. This in turns mean that the Directors must complete the course. More information can be found at http://trusteetraining.pensionsboard.ie/ or from www.pensionsboard.ie . We will be conacting all client's directly in the coming weeks with more information.
