Hi.
I am a freelance translator who moved back to Ireland at the beginning of 2006. As a result I will not make my first income declaration until this year. I was wondering if there is anyone out there who can give me an idea of how much I might expect to pay, what i can write off, etc.
Thanks, GJH

Hi Garrett,

have you been onto revenue.ie yet?

I *think* the limit is around €25K before you have to start paying tax, but I'm not 100% sure.

You mean you haven't registered yet? Haven't paid any advance (preliminary) tax? You'd better consult an accountant or tax adviser, fast, to avoid problems with the tax people. You should also read e.g. http://www.revenue.ie/index.htm?/leaflets/taxguide_chapt1.htm

Thanks.
Yes, I have registered, and I do have an accountant, who advised me I am not liable for any (preliminary) tax for the first year.

That wasn't clear from your first mail. If you have an accountant, then he or she will be able to give you all the advice you need on tax matters - that's their job, after all.
