Eire Call for Elimination of Vat Rate Bizarre

Chambers Ireland has today (09/10/14) renewed its call for the 9% VAT rate for the hospitality and tourism sectors to be retained in Budget 2015.

Speaking this afternoon, Mark O'Mahoney, Director of Policy and Communications, Chambers Ireland said “SIPTU's call for the elimination of the 9% VAT rate is simply bizarre.

The hospitality and tourism sectors are labour intensive, and employ significant numbers of people in a variety of businesses. It is vital that the businesses in these sectors are supported in order to protect jobs. Maintaining the 9% rate will help protect and grow employment throughout Ireland.”
