Finance Bill 2019: Report Stage (19 Nov 2019)

Denis Naughten: To clarify, Irish Community Rapid Response is registered as a charity in Ireland. That is not the issue. The issue is that it buys a service from Sloane Helicopters, which is based in the United Kingdom. This operates very well and a model has been developed on this basis. After Brexit, however, in order to operate in an EU member state, Sloane Helicopters will have to be registered in an...

Finance Bill 2019: Report Stage (19 Nov 2019)

Paschal Donohoe: I take the Deputy's clarification. Of course he is right, it is the company. However, that just emphasises my point regarding a level playing field for companies paying tax. What the amendment is looking for is that a charity would not pay VAT when buying goods from a UK registered company that becomes registered in Ireland. How can that be fair to every other charity or company that pays...

Finance Bill 2019: Report Stage (19 Nov 2019)

Denis Naughten: The point I am making is that the company will be forced to register here. It will not have a choice. To operate here after the UK exits the European Union it will be forced to do this. This is where the difficulty arises. As a result, we are looking at a charity having an additional financial burden of €2 million a year.

Finance Bill 2019: Report Stage (19 Nov 2019)

Paschal Donohoe: I move amendment No. 9: In page 30, line 16, to delete "10 years" and substitute "7 years". On foot of the 2018 Indecon review of the employment investment incentive, EII, and following on from the priority package of measures I implemented in last year's Finance Bill, I have brought forward a number of enhancements to the EII scheme to increase its effectiveness and attractiveness, at...

Finance Bill 2019: Report Stage (19 Nov 2019)

Michael McGrath: I welcome these amendments. The EII scheme has needed reform and improvement. It provides vital funding in the early stages of life for many businesses and it is important that we make it as attractive as possible so those businesses are given the opportunity to scale up and have access to the level of funding they require to achieve this. The changes in amendments Nos. 9 to 11, inclusive,...

Richard Boyd Barrett: I move amendment No. 13: In page 32, between lines 13 and 14, to insert the following: "Report on wealth and higher incomes taxes 26. Within 6 months of the passing of this Act, the Minister shall produce a report on establishing a wealth tax and increased taxes on high income earners with view to achieving a more equitable distribution of wealth and income.". Something most people...

Finance Bill 2019: Report Stage (19 Nov 2019)

Paschal Donohoe: I have written to the Revenue Commissioners and anticipate a response from them imminently. When I get it, I will make the details from that available to the House. I am aware of the issues raised by Deputy Michael McGrath and the number of workers who would be affected by the measure. I ask the Deputy not to press the amendment. He could do this in anticipation of me making the Deputies...

Finance Bill 2019: Report Stage (19 Nov 2019)

Pearse Doherty: It appears that we will just be getting the information from Revenue Commissioners as to when they are going to implement this. They are saying that they will push ahead with this on 1 January 2020. The substantive issue is the impact it will have on 600,000 workers. What assessment, if any, has the Minister carried out with regard to these changes? I have said many times at the committee...

Finance Bill 2019: Report Stage (19 Nov 2019)

Michael McGrath: Given that he has had direct contact from those who will potentially be affected, the Minister understands that there is genuine concern. This is an administrative scheme operated by the Revenue Commissioners. It is not legislative and we do not have any direct say. Given that there are only a number of weeks until Christmas and in view of the fact the Revenue Commissioners' website is...

Finance Bill 2019: Report Stage (19 Nov 2019)

Paschal Donohoe: I am aware of the impact that this change will have on those who are affected by it. I agree that the House needs to be informed in a timely manner on how the issue stands. I was asked if there is any plan to remove the current collection arrangements for flat-rate expenses. The answer is that there is not. While I am aware of the effect this will have on those who are impacted by the...

Finance Bill 2019: Report Stage (19 Nov 2019)

Denis Naughten: I move amendment No. 8: In page 22, between lines 37 and 38, to insert the following: “(2) For the purpose of clarity such provisions will also apply to businesses with charitable 2 status providing emergency medical services in the State but registered in the UK, which shall be required to re-register in the State following the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European...

Finance Bill 2019: Report Stage (19 Nov 2019)

Paschal Donohoe: I thank the Deputy for raising this matter again. I know that it is of real concern to him, to the organisation involved and, of course, to his constituents, for whom this very important service is provided. Notwithstanding the appreciation I have for the issue and the way in which the Deputy has raised it, I have questioned it again since he raised it on Committee Stage and I cannot...
