Ireland — Budget 2012
The Irish Budget was presented to the Dail Eireann on 6 December 2011. Of particular interest to expatriate employers was the announcement of a Special Assignee Relief Programme and a Foreign Earnings Deduction which will apply to certain individuals working in Brazil, Russia, India, China or South Africa.
In addition, the current 50% relief from employer pay related social insurance (PRSI) for contributions made by an employee to an employee’s occupational pension scheme is to be abolished from 1 January 2012.
