Do you qualify for Flat Rate Expenses in relation to your profession?
Flat Rate Expenses are employment expenses claimable depending on the profession you are in.
Revenue have undertaken a review of these and despite opposition from many trade unions they will be withdrawn from 1st January 2020. If you qualify for flat rate expenses, you can still claim these for the tax years 2015 – 2019.
Please note the 2015 tax year must be claimed by the 31st December 2019. Ensure you claim this entitlement while it is still available to you.
A list of qualifying professions are available here; https://www.revenue.ie/en/employing-people/employee-expenses/flat-rate-expense-allowances/index.aspx
