Moving to Ireland

In July 2009 a new local authority charge was intruduced in Ireland. It is a charge on any residential property (unit) that is not the main residence of the owner. The charge is a flat rate of €200 . The charge is per dwelling - so a block of 30 apartments owned by one person or company - will incur a charge of €6000 Euro.

The introduction of a new Local Property Tax in 203 will see the ending of the NPPR - but not until 2014
Liablity for 2013 is set on March 31st - if you owned a property then you are liable for the full charge (even if you have sold it since). Late payment (after July) will mean penalties of €20 a month until payment is made.

The charge (the government don't like to call it a tax) - is payable by non residents as well as Irish residents. If you live in the UK and own a holiday home in Ireland - you will be liable for the charge.

In typical Irish fashion - the onus is on the property owners to register all non principal private residences that they own. No letters or bills will be sent out by the local councils. The charge is going to fund local authorities - but the payment and registration can be done online at www.nppr.ie.
