Budget 2016


Finance Minister Michael Noonan has delivered Ireland’s 2016 Budget to parliament. The budget was notable for having only one tax increase, that on cigarettes. Other than that the budget, the last one before a likely general election which has to be held before 8th April 2016, focused on on tax cuts and spending increases.

The Finance Minister has steered the country out of one of its greatest financial crises after it exited a bailout programme in 2013 and is now one of Europe’s fastest growing economies.
