The 2014 Finance Bill was published yesterday and it is available here with related documents.
There’s not a lot new in the Bill. One of the very minor changes relates to mortgage interest relief, with the relief now available to Income Tax payers in Ireland (who derive the bulk of their income in Ireland) for qualifying loans on PPRs in the entire European Economic Area rather than just Ireland. There are plenty of other minor changes.
On the changes to corporate residency rules announced in the budget The National Law Review in the US has published a useful article under the heading: Death of the “Double Irish Dutch Sandwich”? Not so Fast. re: Irish Incorporated Non-resident Companies. It is available here.
Earlier in the week the Minister for Finance and the Opposition Finance spokespeople gave statements to the Dáil on the pre-budget statement of the Fiscal Advisory Council. The transcripts of these Dáil statements are here.
