USC for self-employed to be cut in Budget 2016

#TaxTipsIreland #Budget2016

Finance Minister Michael Noonan is expected to reduce the universal social charge rate for self-employed people and entrepreneurs in Budget 2016.

Budget 2016 - the universal social charge rate expected to be reduced

Self-employed people currently pay 3% more USC on earnings over €100,000 than PAYE workers earning the same amount. The higher rate has been heavily criticised for stifling entrepreneurial activity in Ireland.

This follows recent confirmation that the USC rate for PAYE workers will be cut, giving pay packets a small but welcome boost.

Next month’s Budget is also expected to introduce tax credits for the self-employed in a bid to incentivise people to start their own businesses.
