The exit tax rate applying to investment funds is being increased and standardised (as flagged in last month's Front Page and since confirmed in the Finance Bill 2014). Provided appropriate procedures are complied with, no exit tax should arise where the relevant investor is an exempt Irish resident or a foreign tax resident. Where exit tax does arise, payments made annually or more frequently (previously taxed at 33%) and payments made less frequently than annually (previously taxed at 36%) will be taxed at 41%. The increased rate will apply to payments, including deemed payments, made on or after 1 January 2014. The higher rates of tax applying to Personal Portfolio Investment Undertakings will also be increased from 1 January 2014 (from 56% to 60% where correctly declared and from 74% to 80% where not correctly declared).

"The newsfeeds deliver us the most recent legal analysis and practical information. There seems to be a broad analysis which is beneficial to us in analyzing various areas of law. It provides a snap shot update of various legal developments and assists us in staying current. The articles are well covered and include the right amount of detail. The size and depth of articles are good too, so we can get to the information one needs very quickly. The articles are typically of high calibre and from high-calibre authors who provide sufficiently succinct articles so that one can learn much about new developments in a short amount of time. I like the format because it is easy to scan for relevant articles. It's a great tool. I like the fact you can tailor the newsfeeds by jurisdiction and work area, and only receive information relevant to your practice."
