    Accessing US ETFs

Thus their funds are barred...

    Solar panels connect to stove pipes

    The usual way to do this is to install a hot water tank with two convection loops - one for the boiler, one for the solar panels. The solar panel convection loop is filled with glycol so that it will not freeze and cause damage in the winter-time, so it would not be good practice to combine the two

    Why there is so little house building in Ireland

    That is not what the report said - the conclusion was It was clear then, and even more so now, that without building more homes, no matter what the split of the housing stock between rented properties and ppr, there is a crisis in play.

    Tax liability on inheritance from a different country

    Inheritance taxes in Ireland are paid by the inheritor and the provenance of the inheritance does not come into account other than tax paid in the originator country may be off-settable against tax due in Ireland. The double taxation treaty between Ireland and France does not cover capital...

    Taxation of income from an overseas PHI policy.

    First of all, if he is back in Ireland and is now resident or ordinarily resident, he is taxed on his world-wide income, so leaving the income in the States has no bearing on it being taxable or not If your friend has American nationality or dual nationality, he will be taxed by the americans...

    State Savings - 40/50k for 10yrs

    This has been the standard remark for the last 10 years or so but it isn't anywhere near what has been priced into the market price of euro bonds - but it will eventually come to pass, so … (it's a bit like fusion energy, it's always just 10 year or so away and has been for the last 50 years)

    My experience with installing SEAI grant aided solar PV

    Employees are taxed on Month1/Week1 basis because the employer does not have a tax cert from the Revenue or they are in a second job. It would be most unusual for a permanent employee to be taxed on a Month1 basis The easiest way to check this is to ask the Payroll or Personnel department

    Tax treatment of Aryzta scrip dividend

    For Aryzta, that doesn't seem like the same transaction. The dividend scrip issue for 2017 was 1 new share for every 80 held whereas you got 1 for 4 so that must have been something else again

    Partnership accounts and allowable expenses

    I would think that you can probably do either - they will have to file income tax returns with details of their share of the income and expense so whether the do this via the business or through personal claims is probably makes no difference.
