Couple of new tax benefits for new workers…

In order to help get the job market moving, a new measure from the Government says that:

  • Unemployed with children now entitle any employer who gives them an indefinate contract (full time) with a €1,500 annual deduction in Social Security payments (for two years).
  • Unemployed people who register as autónomo (self employed) can, as a once off, pull up to 60% of their unpaid unemployment benefit to offset start up costs (instead of the previous 40%).

See your tax office or employer for more information, or the MEH website.
