Oct 09, 2017

The Department of Finance has confirmed that the Finance Bill will be published on 19 October.  The timetable for the Bill tells us that it will pass all stages in the Dáil by mid-December.

According to the Department of Finance timetable, the Bill will move to debate at Committee Stage on 7 November and is due at Report Stage on 21 November.  The Bill is expected to pass to the Seanad on 28 November. 

The Bill will legislate for the tax measures announced by the Minister as part of his Budget 2018 speech. Also, it is usual for the Bill to contain measures not announced by the Minister. We will be scrutinising the Bill and will report on the main measures in Tax eNews.
