Pensions Tax Relief to Change to 33%


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.
