Split Year Relief

Planning on Moving Abroad?

If you are resident in Ireland in the year of moving and non-resident the following year, you can claim Split Year Relief in the year of moving abroad. This applies to employment income only.

Your income is taxed as standard as a resident up to the date of departure, and your employment income after this date is ignored for Irish tax.

Therefore, you receive a full year of tax credits even though you have only been resident here for part of the year!

Returning or Moving to Ireland?

The same applies if you are returning to Ireland from living abroad if you are going to be resident in Ireland for the following calendar year. Any foreign income you earned before returning and becoming tax resident again is not subject to Irish tax.

You will be able to benefit from a full year of tax credits.

An application is required by Revenue to apply for this treatment.

Getting tax back on your Pension Lump Sum

As the October 31st tax deadline races towards us, you may want to consider topping up your pension, as this is the deadline for claiming any tax relief this amount for the 2017 tax year.

You can make lump sum payments to your private pension or an AVC (Additional Voluntary Contribution) to your occupational pension.

If you ‘top up’ your pension by 31st October 2018, you are entitled to claim tax relief on that ‘top up’ amount against the tax paid in 2017.

Let us show you an example;

Ann ‘tops up’ her pension €1,000
Ann claims tax relief on €1,000 @ her marginal rate (40%) €400

In the above example, Ann has ‘topped up’ her pension by €1,000 but the real cost to her was €600 as she claimed back €400 tax relief.


Your pension ‘top-up’ needs to be paid by 31st October and your return completed.
