What you need to know before buying property in Ireland

The process of purchasing property in Ireland is not that different from other European countries. If you have all the funds needed at once, it’s even easier and faster. As a general rule, foreigners who want to buy property in Ireland are expected to make a 30-50% deposit. If you want to buy the property through a mortgage, you should keep in mind that the application process can be quite a challenge as most Irish banks consider non-Irish residents a greater risk.

 

VAT registration In Ireland

Every legal business entity operating in Ireland is obliged to pay VAT, save for a few businesses and individuals who are exempted; fishers, farmers and a few others. VAT is added on to the value of services or products at each stage of production or distribution. It’s rather a clever structure set up by governments to make companies unpaid tax collectors. The upside to VAT is that if your business is VAT registered, you can claim a VAT credit from the Irish Revenue for the tax you paid to other VAT registered entities. Sadly final consumers can only pay VAT but they cannot claim it.
