This week, Dublin Chamber submitted its pre-budget submission to the Department of Finance alongside high-ranking members of Government.

Our main budget asks for 2024 are:

  • Revise the National Planning Framework (NPF) to reflect the higher population growth in the Greater Dublin Area (GDA).
  • Accelerate capital investment in water, waste water, energy and transport projects in the GDA to deliver these projects ahead of schedule. 
  • Boost the supply of affordable accommodation in the Greater Dublin Area (GDA). 
  • Reduce the income tax barriers facing returning to work spouses and increase the universal subsidy provided by the National Childcare Scheme (NCS).  
  • Introduce a 20% Capital Gains Tax (CGT) rate on disposals of investments in SMEs and apply a Venture Limit to Entrepreneur Relief to boost investment in Irish enterprise.
  • Apply an SME test to all enterprise tax reliefs to ensure they work for small business.  

We encourage you to read this submission in full once it is available on our website, due to be published shortly.

Dublin Chamber’s pre-budget submission has been drafted with the direct input of members, collected through mediums such as roundtable discussions, survey responses, and our Budget and Competitiveness taskforce, which is comprised of your elected council members, amongst other forms of feedback.
