My understanding is that this is to prove the number of occupants in the house (for water allowance purposes). Why wouldn't you want to claim the allowances? Presumably it'll cost more for the water without them!If I do NOT wish to claim Water Allowances...why does a water utility need my PPS numbers?
There is a 30,000l annual allowance per household plus 21,000 (proposed) per child aged 17 and under.Is the free allowance per house or per person (children aside)?
Why ? It will be possible for a single person with a water meter to have zero water charges if they use less that 30000l a year.Surely that would translate to a minimum €160 charge of for all homes.
That's a bit Irish alright . . an empty house using no water will pay €160 but other can get a zero bill of staying within their quota. I'll be interested if I can get a zero bill so.Why ? It will be possible for a single person with a water meter to have zero water charges if they use less that 30000l a year. The minimum charge will apply just to non principal residences (it is proposed)
The PTRB are allowed to keep PPS numbers -but the forms the tenants fill in are surely for the PTRB and not for landlords to retain the data. I would have thought that retaining PPS details is breaking the data protection regulations ?Don't know, but I personally have the PPS numbers of at this stage a large amount of people. (PRTB for landlords requires this) I've accumulated quite a lot of data on people.
