    Capital Gains Tax on sale of share in family home

    So the current market value is €300k. The purchase price was £42,000 I assume in the 1990s. So it’s 300k -( €50k (x indexation)) = €240k x 1/3 = €80k - €1,270 = 79k x 30% = €24k!!!! It’s unfortunate that your name was added to the deeds and that you did not just loan the money to your sibling.

    Travel from Home Office - Tax Deductible Yes or No ?

    I would have always said that the base was the house but since the contractors project I’m not so sure. It could be that you are using the home office for convienec and therefore the place of work changes to the clients office and therefore you are not entitled to claim expenses. Personally I...

    Tax on repaying sign on bonus

    I’d imagine that they would process it through payroll so that your last months salary would be €5,000 lower and therefore the tax would refunded automatically by implication in this job or the next.

    Returning from abroad, capital gains tax and section 29A

    On the face of it I’d imagine your overthinking it unless the fund is heavily invested in one company to a very large extent. This was brought in, in response to a certain media tycoon who owned a valuable communications company and left Ireland to live in Portugal. He then sold the very...

    Renovation Property as a Business

    That looks like income tax not CGT particularly if you have a building company. VAT is complex in residential property. A second hand house which is outside the VAT net may stay outside the VAT net. RCT will apply to all payments to subcontractors.

    Cohabitants' agreement and court application for support

    I think that it would be very unwise to write a will stating that the children get everything the your partner does not get. First of all let’s deal with the house. If they don’t own another house then the house should qualify for the “Dwelling House Exemption” and therefore be exempt from...
