The Department of Finance published a document on Friday 29th April – Ireland – Stability Report update. On page 39 it indicates that a decision has been made to set Pension Tax Relief at 33%.
The wording is as follows:
Tax relief for contributions to existing occupational and personal pension
arrangements currently based on a contributor’s marginal rate of tax will be
replaced with a State contribution equal to 33 per cent tax relief. This will
promote simplicity and equity and ensure that similar options are available to
all groups of employees.
