Budget 2018 Submission

In Budget 2018 Chambers Ireland are calling for Government to focus on matters within our control to mitigate Brexit challenges. Significant investment in infrastructure is our number one priority for Budget 2018 and we call on Government to increase investment to at least 4% of GDP.

Cover of Pre-Budget SubmissionOur Pre Budget 2018 Submission outlines key infrastructure priorities particularly in areas such as: transport, housing, broadband, energy and water. 

Investing in Ireland's future also requires a focus on education and skills, childcare and how to address current and future pensions challenges. We strongly advocate for the establishment of a Rainy Day Fund to ensure that future infrastructure investment can be protected. 

The Small Business Focus section of the Pre Budget Submission highlights measures which would improve working conditions for small businesses, which are the corner stone of our economy. 

We recommed changes to the taxation system in the short and medium term. The short term focus is on measures to deliver equity between the self-employed and PAYE workers. In the immediate to longer term we would like to see Government review the entry point to the higher rate of income tax and develop a roadmap to a more competitive income tax system.
