ICAI welcomes end to PAYE 'double-taxation'
Follows months of discussions with Irish Revenue Commissioners
The Irish Revenue’s decision to allow
cross-border workers to earn money in the Republic without double deduction of
PAYE has been welcomed by the Institute of
Chartered Accountants in Ireland (ICAI).
The new rule means that provided some reasonable conditions are met by their
employers, workers on assignments of up to six months in the Republic will not
be liable for Irish PAYE.
It follows months of discussion with ICAI in the wake of new tax rules which
came into force last year, which meant that all employees working in the
Republic became subject to Irish PAYE, even if they were already paying PAYE in
their home country.
