Income Tax Relief may be available to clients or their relatives at their top rate of tax, subject to Revenue Commissioners conditions and approval. This means that you could receive tax relief of up to 41% of the cost of our service. It is also possible to claim this relief as part of your tax credits and so you receive the benefit as part of your weekly or monthly wages and therefore receive the benefit immediately. When more than one person is paying the costs of Home Care, the Tax Relief may be divided between the contributors pro-rata to their contributions, once the total does not exceed €50,000 if any Tax Year.

Who Else Can Claim?

You, your spouse or a relative.  A "relative" includes relation by marriage and also a person for whom the claimant is, or was, the legal guardian.

Do I Pay VAT On The Service?
