NPPR tax refund for 2013.


Recent High Court decision on NPPR.

In November 2016, the High Court ruled that the non-principal private residence charge (NPPR) is deductible against rental profits. The Revenue were appealing a previous decision by the tax appeal commissioner which found in favour of a landlord who had disputed the Revenue’s stance that the NPPR was a national charge distinct from a local authority rate which is tax deductible. The Revenue are appealing the High Court decision.

Making a claim.

Section 865 of the Taxes Consolidation Act 1997 limits the right to a refund to four years from the end of the chargeable period to which the claim relates. The NPPR charge was payable for the years 2009 – 2013. The years 2009 to 2012 fall outside the four year limit and no claim can be made for these years. It is still possible to make a claim for 2013 until the end of 2017. However the Revenue’s appeal will not be heard by the Court of Appeal until 2018
