Are You Ready To Pay Your Local Property Tax?


The Local Property Tax (LPT) for 2015 is coming due and will become liable for payment on January 7th. The Local Property Tax is a self assessed tax based on the value of your home and is due every year as part of the governments property charge initiative. It is possible to do a phased payment option with the full amount being paid by the end of 2015. The amount due is calculated based on the value of your home under revenue guidelines and the letter you would have received from Revenue will give an indication as to the payment band you are currently assessed at. There are a range of payment options for LPT including:


  • Cheque or Postal Order for the full amount
  • Deduction at source from your Salary
  • Monthly Direct Debit from your Bank Account
  • Regular Payments through one of the Payment Providers (An Post, Payzone)
  • Paying in Full by Credit Card
  • Paying in Full by Debit Transfer


For many homeowners the Local Property Tax will be less than €315 (e.g. the home price band up to €200k) but other, particularly Dublin homeowners, will pay more due to the average house price in Dublin of €250k (e.g. €495). As the Local Property Tax is a compulsory tax administered by Revenue there are very few cases where the tax can be avoided. Revenue have the power to deduct from your salary if you elect to ignore or not to pay the charge within the prescribed timelines. The best course of action is to take care of the charge and send back your completed payment order by January 7th. You wont be charged until March 21st if you do so and this will give you some post Christmas relief before payment is deducted.

Yes Avid Partners have two divisions of the company. We have an accountancy division that handles your day to day financial necessities and we also have an advisory division to assist companies develop their businesses. This can include consultancy, marketing and guidance when required. We can act as a Chairperson for your organisation if required and can also take away some of the day to day pressures that can restrict growth and slow development. Avid Partners can help with both of the critical aspects of a company, keeping costs down as much as possible and growing revenues exponentially. Technology companies need patience in developing their visions and an involved day to day partner is the best way of keeping a good business balance.
It is a common problem for companies who are in a situation where their business is growing in real terms (users, visitors) but sales is not matching the other growth metrics as traditionally sales lags behind growth (Twitter, Linked In, etc). So what do you do? Every business needs access to finance to pay operating costs which gives the company time to develop future revenue streams. Thankfully the situation is getting better with many tech friendly finance options coming on stream such as micro financing, crowd funding and government agencies are also starting to show support interests.
Every company starts out small with very limited resources at the beginning of the project. The key is to make the most from the resources you have and to seek out alliances, support systems and working partners. Start ups face many challenges including access to capital, regulatory requirements, economies of scale. We can help you develop your concept and will assist in every way possible from accountancy and day to day support to advisory services and raising finance. We can assist in a number of ways and have a portfolio of growing small companies that we help on an on-going basis.
