Anxiety rises among elderly in the Midlands as Budget 2014 looms

Members of Active Retirement Ireland (ARI) in the Midlands region met in Tullamore this week to discuss the cumulative impact of austerity on the elderly to date and to raise these concerns with local representatives as Budget 2014 approaches. Many who are reliant on the State pension noted the erosion of its value due to additional taxes and rising prices. Accompanied by reduced entitlements and benefits, the elderly are at increasing risk of experiencing isolation, dependency, and deprivation. Members, in their submission, request the protection of the pension and the reversal of savage cuts made to the household benefit package introduced in Budget 2013.

Households face more expensive solid fuel this winter

A new solid fuel carbon tax will come into effect across the country in five days’ time on Wednesday May 1, when a new excise duty will be laid on solid fuels, such as coal and peat. The new duty which is being administered by the Revenue Commissioners will make those who first supply the fuel in the State responsible for collection; this will be either the wholesaler who brings in the fuel to Ireland, or the retailer who sources their own supply from outside the State.

Reduce tax take on fuel to stimulate economy says Grealish

If fuel prices continue to rise at their current rate, it will have a catastrophic effect on the competitiveness of Irish products and services, both at home and abroad.

New Year is an opportunity to get back to the land

A new year begins and with it comes a series of mixed messages that serve to confuse rather than fortify resolve. Appeals by charities abroad for funding against famine and war reveal that while austerity may now be hitting home, these current dark times fail to compare against emergency situations where basic human needs such as food and shelter are not being met.

Lack of new thinking by government in budget - IBEC

IBEC, the group that represents Irish business, has stated that the Government has relied too heavily on increasing tax in Budget 2012, rather than reducing current expenditure. The group welcomed specific measures aimed at supporting R&D and financial services, attracting mobile talent and restoring normal activity to the property market, but said the scale of these positive measures was small when compared to the very negative effect of the €90 million increase in employer PRSI charges and the major reduction in the redundancy rebate, announced yesterday. The total cost of Budget 2012 to business will be in the region of €400 million.
