10 Reasons to Re-Non-Domicile in Ireland if Red Ed Wins in May

Non-doms, hedge fund managers, entrepreneurs and investors are still welcome in Ireland:

  1. Only income from Irish sources is taxable in Ireland.
  2. Income from UK or foreign sources is only taxable to the extent of amounts remitted (brought into) Ireland.
  3. Remittances of capital are not subject to Irish income tax – income earned at a time when the individual was not resident in Ireland would be treated as capital in nature and therefore not subject to income tax here when brought (remitted) to Ireland. This means that while such individuals will be chargeable to tax in Ireland on Irish source income and gains, they will only be chargeable on foreign income and gains to the extent that they are remitted to Ireland.
  4. Where non-domiciled individuals come to Ireland and use their wealth accumulated outside of Ireland to cover their day to day living expenses, it is possible for such individuals to live in Ireland free of tax.
  5. Individuals tax resident or ordinarily tax resident but not domiciled in Ireland are liable to Capital Gains Tax on gains arising on the disposal of assets situated in Ireland and the United Kingdom, and on all foreign gains to the extent that those gains are remitted to Ireland.
  6. Prime property in Dublin as well as estates in the country are still below their bubble highs – though Dublin is rebounding fast. Beachfront properties or houses with stabling facilities are plentiful.
  7. Ireland has world beating sporting teams, fantastic golf courses, the fishing is spectacular, hunting is legal, the sailing is great and the country is the world leader in equestrian sports.
  8. Ireland’s regional airports are an hour away from London City Airport in your Lear  jet.
  9. Ireland has a world class educational system and universities, technology start-ups are springing up everywhere, foreign tech firms like Twitter base their European headquarters in Ireland because the young well-educated English-speaking workforce has the talent they need.   The International Financial Services Centre ‘IFSC’ in Dublin welcomes hedge funds with financial incentives to relocate and is second only to London for the number of fund managers. The Heritage Foundation ranks Ireland the freest economy in the euro-zone.
  10. There is broad cross-party support for Ireland remaining a low tax, business friendly country welcoming to foreign investors. Corporation tax is 12.5%, inward investment incentives with tax breaks for entrepreneurs are generous.

If Red Ed does get elected on May 7 and the socialist terror comes to Britain, Ireland will welcome the huddled elite, yearning to breathe free…

Happy St Patrick’s Day From Guido and Tony Abbott

NHS Used to Lure US Tech Firms to Britain

us tech companies

The government is trying to attract US tech companies to the UK by tempting them with the prospect of being treated on the NHS as part of the “expat experience”. Alongside access to free healthcare, US companies who take advantage of the UK Trade & Investment’s HQ-UK project are being offered exclusive perks such 24 hour processing for visa applications, a complete concierge service to manage the transition of the company and a relationship manager to help newly-arrived firms get connected. Whether the lure of waiting in a NHS walk-in centre is enough to tempt the yanks away from Ireland’s 12.5 per cent corporation tax rate is yet to be seen…

No Sun, No Comment

ni-tax-x480

Well done to the FT’s Chris Giles, George Parker and Vincent Boland for the front page confirmation today of Guido’s story from back in October about the Tory offer to the Northern Irish unionists on corporation tax. As Guido’s readers in The Sun and here already know, the Tories have promised a deal on business taxes to allow Northern Ireland to compete with the Republic’s lower taxes. Guido’s unionist source told him it was likely the corporation tax rate would be cut from 20% to “12% or 13%” to compete with the lower tax rates offered by Dublin. “Anything but 12.5%, we’re not harmonising with the Republic. No!”

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

Guido is off with the kids to the parade in Waterford.

Ireland Voting to Abolish Second Chamber

ABOLISH-SEANADToday Ireland is voting in a referendum to abolish the Seanad – the second chamber of parliament which costs some €20 million a year to provide a sinecure for recycled politicians who have been kicked out of the properly elected chamber by the voters.  Ireland is weighed down with too many politicians. New Zealand got rid of their second chamber and they carried on just fine…

Call Me Chuka O’Munna

As revealed in yesterday’s Sun column, two-faced Chuka Umunna isn’t so shy about the ‘British Obama’ tag when he’s away from the public eye. When the President visited Ireland in the summer of 2011 he delighted his hosts by telling them of his Moneygall ancestral roots and dubbing himself Barry O’Bama. This year it was Chuka’s turn, speaking to guests at the Labour Irish Society’s St Patrick’s Day shindig of a relative from Sligo. Telling them they could call him Chuka O’Munna may have given the game away…

Happy St Patrick’s Day Prime Minister

You knew he was Irish…
