Subject: BS: DOMESTIC RATE WERE NEVER ABOLISHED IN IR

There seems to be a myth that Haughey abolished domestic rates in Ireland,.He increased the rate of vat by 2 per cent while going through a charade of abolishing domestic rates, so there was no loss of revenue to the government at that time.

Good to know. Is "IR" Ireland, Iraq or Iran?

C'mon, Jack. Just read the first post.



I'd like to know what the VAT currently is in Ireland.

Sorry if I offended GSS just making a little joke about your title. Looks good now.

Following that link by JtS it seems that the Republic currently has some 4 different rates of VAT from 4.8% up to 23%.

I remember we in the UK were told on the introduction of VAT that such measures were possible, but I don't think we ever implemented them, so we just have the one rate.

Does that system work well for you guys? I can see that it might offer choices to the taxation authorities, but does it cause problems too?

"I remember we in the UK were told on the introduction of VAT that such measures were possible, but I don't think we ever implemented them, so we just have the one rate."

Errrrmmm, on a point of order M'Lud, we have three - Standard Rate (20%), Reduced Rate (5%), and Zero Rate (0%).

Yeah, I was discounting the zero rate but I confess to being unaware of any reduced rate...what is that one for? (I know I should look it up, but one so seldom gets the chance to simply ask someone that I can't resist).

Most changes in taxation anywhere are designed simply to shift the burden (and gain political advantage) rather than reduce overall tax revenue. Domestic rates were abolished, and I'm surprised that GSS is surprised that the government sought to recoup this from other taxes.

I believe Ireland is about to introduce a local property tax, which at a quick glance seems to be on a similar basis to the community charge in the UK. I wonder whether they will make any corresponding reductions to the tax burden elsewhere - I suspect not, which is probably more of a reason to complain.

howard i presume you get some services for paying council tax, i do not have a refuse collecton, i do not have street lighting, i pay motor tax which is supposed to pay for the upkeep of the road, the introduction of the property tax is to pay off the gigantic debt incurred by the anglo irish bank , for which i am no way responsible.
