BUDGET 2016: RGDATA Welcomes Tax Credit Changes For Self-Employed

RGDATA has welcomed measures introduced in Budget 2016 that will "put extra money in people's pockets", as well as moves to reduce the tax burden on the self-employed.

“The tax credit for the self employed is a step in the right direction," said Tara Buckley, Director General, RGDATA. "RGDATA has been campaigning for a long time for equal tax treatment for self-employed business owners."

RGDATA also welcomed the Minister’s announcement about charges for debit and credit card transactions. “These costs need to kept under close review if we want to encourage shopkeepers to accept card payments for low transactions and encourage less cash in society," Buckley said.

She did add, however that it was "regrettable" that the Budget did not make provisions for "specific tax initiatives to assist the regeneration of rural towns and villages”.
