Ennis Chamber welcomes new Working Group to examine USC-PRSI merge

Ennis Chamber has fully endorsed the stance taken by Chambers Ireland this week in welcoming the announcement by Minister for Finance, Paschal Donohoe TD,  to establish a cross – departmental Working Group to examine and report on options for the amalgamation of USC and PRSI.

William Cahir,  President, Ennis Chamber said, “We welcome the clear commitment from Government to long-term planning and the reform of our personal taxation system. Increased simplification of the tax system will be welcome for both employers and employees alike.

He added, “However, having successfully broadened the tax base with the introduction of USC, it is vital that any new approach does not risk narrowing the base and increasing the risk of boom and bust cycles.”
