Tuesday afternoon, Ministers Noonan and Donohue presented the budget for 2017 to the Dail. It included a number of expected measures, along with some interesting talking points. It’s very easy to get lost in the stats, but what implications does this really have? At a breakfast briefing this morning, hosted by RBK, Ulster bank and Athlone Chamber of Commerce, some of the main areas were outlined and have been summarised below – USC has been reduced by 0.5% Social welfare payments are to be increased by €5 per week €15 million has been allocated to bringing high-speed broadband to rural Ireland The education sector will receive an extra €458 million. This will be spent on recruitment of 2400 teaching staff, €36 million on higher and further education, and a 35% increase on early years funding A tax increase on cigarettes of 50c per pack VRT relief on the purchase of hybrid vehicles as a measure in support of tackling climate change First-time buyers will get an income tax rebate of 5% on the value of their purchase up to a cap of €20,000 refund €1.2bn in funding for housing, with47,000 new social housing units by 2021 800 additional Gardaí to be recruited in 2017 1000 additional nurses and midwives to be recruited 10c rise in the minimum wage as recommended by Low Pay Commission There has been a mixed reaction to the budget announcement so far.
