      Health insurance tax relief cap of €1,000 (adult)/€500 (child) and DIRT rate are probably the two which stands out for me as bad policy.
      Apart from that, little to see. Pity he didn't finish the job and make make the full adjustment.

            Yeah Armin, anyone lucky to have something saved now has double incentives NOT to leave it in Ireland between huge DIRT and no bank guarantee

            I still have accounts overseas from when I worked in the UK and US and have a few grand from a redundancy program a few years ago. I think i'll put it elsewhere

              No comment on the DIRT increase? Not many savers left these days I suppose.

              EDIT: Oops. Missed Armin's comment.

                Yeah being saving for hopefully paying the costs of 3rd level education for the kids. Think it's time to move it overseas.

                  Agreed McCloud, that's what I was keeping it for too. With the interest rates being so low, plus any little bit you earn in interest getting almost halved by DIRT, it's lousy

                      I think foreign interest is taxable in Ireland if you are resident here. Also you are taking on FX risk in US/UK, though at he moment might work in your favour.

                        Offshore bank accounts? I hope you guys arent being serious because that is one way to end up getting destroyed by those sadists in the revenue

                          Foreign earned interest is of course taxable here, but whether you declare it or not is another matter.

                            So I walked as day was dawning
                            Where small birds sang and leaves were falling
                            Where we once watched the row boats landing
                            By the broad majestic shannon

                              I saw a quote earlier from Michael Noonan that he was confident that within the next year the vast majority of those in arrears with the mortgage on their principal private resident will have been offered and accpeted sustainable solutions to deal with their mortgage difficulties.

                              The man is delusional.

                                Too true. Where is the money going to come from? A sizeable number of people can't pay more in or even meet existing payments. What does Noonan suggest? Extend all mortgages to 50 years so our children can pay that off too? Or have the banks write off a lot of the debt so we can pick up the tab for that too and get another bail out?
