    Capital Acquisitions Tax (CAT)

    It is not uncommon for people to pay larger amounts of CAT than necessary.  Expert advice can often mean that these bills are reduced.  It is vital that in order to avail of any available reliefs or exemptions, professional advice is sought in advance i.e. prior to gifting assets or at the time of writing a will.

    Capital Gains Tax (CGT)

    If you decide to sell or gift anything of value you could be liable to CGT.  You are obliged to inform the Revenue Commissioners of your disposal and failure to do so could give rise to penalties.  There are various reliefs and exemptions available and expert advice should be sought before selling or gifting any asset.

    Should additional work arise outside of the annual compliance work, we will obviously bill separately, and you will be advised of the need for this in advance.

    Where non compliance, specialist advice is required, this work will be billed on the basis of the time requirement charged at our hourly rates.  We will endeavour to provide a realistic quotation for the total cost of such work in advance, however, given the nature of these types of assignments, it may be necessary to provide you with a revised quotation during the course of the assignment.
