Deadline for accessing AVC's is fast approaching

A reminder that the deadline for pre-retirement access to AVCs is 26 March 2016.  You can access up to 30% of the value of your AVCs.  Amounts accessed are subject to income tax but not PRSI or USC.  This can be useful if you require access to cash or if your fund is approaching the €2 million threshold.   Our dedicated Tax Department are here to help with any queries you may have.

 

Tax Alert

Key dates for paying your 2016 LPT charge:

 

5pm on 7 January 2016: Deadline for paying in full by cash, cheque, postal order, credit card or debit card.

January 2016:  Phased payments by Deduction at Source and regular cash payments through a Payment Service Provider to start in January.

15 January 2016: Monthly Direct Debit payments commence and continue on 15th each month thereafter.

21 March 2016:  Single Debit Authority payment deducted.

Tax Alert

There has been a late amendment to the Finance Bill which brings forward the effective date of the €500 increase to the employee voucher scheme to 22 October 2015.

The change was originally announced to be effective only from 1 January 2016.      

The Finance Bill is still going through the process of being enacted, however it seems almost certain now that the €500 euro exemption will be available for vouchers given to employees in advance of this Christmas. 

Congratulations

Congratulations to Oleksandr Parnykoza who received the LHM Casey McGrath Award for first place in the Bachelor of Business - Accounting & Finance, Module: Financial Management & Investment in the Institute of Technology Tallaght (ITT).

Finance Bill

Following from the Budget on 13 October 2015, the Finance Bill was published on 22 October 2015 and contains additional tax measures together with further details of the measures announced in the Budget.  Some of the more significant new points contained in the Finance Bill, which may be of interest to you, are as follows:

 
VAT

 
RCT

 
Revenue Powers

 
Petroleum Production Tax

 

 As always, the team at LHM Casey McGrath will be happy to deal with any queries you may have arising from the Budget/Finance Bill or indeed any other taxation queries.

Ranelagh Arts Festival - A History of the Name of 'Ranelagh'

by Brendan Langley 24 September 2015

In continuing our support for the Ranelagh Arts Festival we once again opened our doors for an evening event within the community. This year’s lecture was by Brendan Langley, a local Historian with a long association with the Ranelagh, Rathmines and Rathgar Historical Society.

Brendan prepared an overview of the provenance of the name ‘RANELAGH’ with an informative journey across time and continents in referencing the many countries, localities and towns where the name has been used. He illustrated the presentation with slides and the well-attended audience were taken from the Wicklow Mountains to London, Paris, Manhattan and Buenos Aires in pursuit of the name ‘RANELAGH’

Brendan concluded his presentation on the evening with an early 18th century reproduction of a map of Ranelagh with the area clearly marked where we were all seated, listening to his presentation. Number 6 Northbrook Road, Ranelagh.
