Irish Tourism Sector:

Back in September, the Irish Tourism Industry Confederation (ITIC) requested that the Government retain the reduced 9% VAT rate in the 2018 Budget.

This VAT rate is important for business travellers to be aware of, particularly those who seek VAT reclaim from Ireland on Hotels and Accommodation. 

The Minister announced that VAT in Tourism Sector in Ireland will not be changed, and will stay at 9%.
