Ireland’s Tax System

For those who are working in Ireland for less than 183 days will be considered as a non-resident and will only be taxed on income that has been earned in Ireland.

Expats who have been in the country for more than 183 days or over 280 days will qualify for tax residency and are responsible to pay for tax on worldwide earnings.

A standard rate of 20 percent on taxable income is required to be paid by all residents and for the income which is earned above will be taxed at 41 percent.

Ireland has ‘tax treaties’ with more than 65 other countries worldwide so the amount that is charged is reduced. It is highly recommended that expats get in contact with a professional tax expert due to the legal information that there is.

The tax year starts on the 1st of January and ends on the 31st of December each year.
