Figures just released show that the government is ahead of target for its ‘tax take’ up to the end of May. It pulled in €14.4bn which was 2.8 per cent higher than forecast.


One interesting piece of news was that May showed a budget surplus of €603 million bringing this years overall budget deficit to €6.53bn.

This resulted in the cost of servicing the national debt falling by €111 million to just under €4bn.

However before we all get to excited, this is still €1.95bn higher than at the same time last year.

Three of the four big taxes were all ahead of budget at the end of May. In particular:

  • Income Tax up by 3.1 per cent
  • Corporation Tax by 17.8 per cent, although this is due to a change in how it is calculated.

The current budget deficit of €6.53bn compares to €10,23bn for the same period last year. However the reason for this is largely due to savings made on the Anglo-Promissory note which accounts for €3.5bn of this difference.

Overall the Governments tax take up to the end of May is €386 million ahead of target.

It appears that the Greek ‘contagion’ effect is beginning to prove a fact as both Dublin and Madrid feel the fall-out of the stalemate being played out in Greek politics.


Mr_noonanMr_noonanIrelands Finance Minister Michael Noonan said this week that a long promised return to the bond market could be jeopardised by events in Greece.Mariano Rayoy, Spains Prime Minister also warned that his country faced being frozen out of the markets as his country paid nearly 50 per cent more to borrow in an auction of €2.5bn of bonds this week.

They carried an average yield of 4.375 per cent, compared to the last auction in April where the average was just 2.89 per cent.

Mr. Noonan’s remarks are in stark contrast to his recent comments a few months ago that Ireland would be able to return to the markets and avoid another bailout.

His other ‘about turn’ was on growth forcasts.Only two months ago he said that Ireland’s economy could take off ‘like a rocket’ next year.

Well the Irish Central Statistics Office had other news for him! It confirmed that the trade surplus fell sharply for the second month in a row from €3.6 billion the previous month down to €3 billion in March.

Simply put, imports are rising quicker than exports and are a serious sign that the eurozone crisis is taking its toll on the Irish economy.

Considering that exports were the only real growth sector of the Irish economy this has to be worrying news for the Irish government.

With so much uncertainly in Europe now who’s next to feel the Greek ‘contagion’ flu?

JobBridge, Ireland’s National Internship Scheme that provides work experience placements for interns for a six-or-nine month period has been extended by an additional 1000 places.

The dilemma for many people to-day is that without work experience for new entrants to the labour market or unemployed workers wishing to learn new skills, it’s virtually impossible to get a job.

One of the goals of the National Internship Scheme is to assist in breaking this cycle.

The scheme which is open to persons who have been on the dole for three months or more has already 5000 places available and Joan Burton, Social Protection Minister has now announced these further places as well as saying that lone parents could also now apply. This will bring the total places available in the scheme to 6000.

The announcement that lone parents were now eligible comes just one month after Burton introduced legislation to cut off the lone parents allowance once a child reaches the age of seven in 2014.Currently the age limit is 14.

To date more than 7,000 people have availed of the internships. Chairman of JobBridge Martin Murphy, managing director of HP Ireland commented that nearly 40 per cent of participants have so far secured full time employment as a result.

Each intern receives €50 per week on top of their standard social welfare payments while they are on the work experience programme.

Critics of JobBridge have said that it was just a way of providing cheap labour but Burton has responded by saying it had already helped a significant amount of people to get work placements. So far she said 797 people had got a job immediately after their internship with the company they worked with or another company and a further 2000 had secured employment at a later stage.

Murphy added that he had received very positive feedback about it from business people.

The Irish economy continues to struggle but PayPal’s recent plan to create up to 1,000 jobs here has cemented our growing reputation as the European hub for US online firms, including Twitter and Facebook.

The online payment group already employs 1,500 people at its Blanchardstown Centre of Excellence in Dublin. The jobs just announced will be based in Dundalk near the border with Northern Ireland. PayPal set up its European headquarters here in 2003 investing €15m in that initial project.

Despite an unemployment rate of 12.4 per cent, February has seen a significant upsurge in job creation across the Republic with most new positions being in the financial services and high-tech sectors.

Most commentators stress that Ireland’s low corporation tax regime and educated workforce are behind this continued inward investment.

Louise Phelan, vice president, PayPal, said the company had considered other foreign locations but had opted to stay with Ireland.

All this is on top of other very positive news from companies such as HP which has just announced a further 280 new jobs; healthcare firm Abbot which is creating 175 jobs and MasterCard which has decided to locate its new global headquarters for its technology operations in Dublin with 130 new jobs over the next four years.

Barry O'Leary, chief executive, IDA (Ireland's Industrial Development Authority), said the PayPal investment was a “clear endorsement of Ireland’s attractiveness to multinational investors”.

The Taoiseach (prime minister), Enda Kenny, added his voice when he said: “It is a clear recognition of the opportunities that Ireland offers global leaders like PayPal.”
