About the NPPR (Non-Principle Private Residence) Charge:

The Local Government (Charges) Act 2009 has introduced a €200 charge for the owners of non principle private residences. The charge applies mainly to owners of private rented property and holiday homes. It also applies to vacant residential property unless newly built but unsold.

Liability to pay the charge is determined by ownership of a relevant property on the “liability date” and the 31st March is the liability date for 2013.

The NPPR Charge is a self assessment liability and owners of property will be required to determine and declare their liability to the NPPR charge.  No invoices or notices requiring payment will be issued by the local authorities.

Payment of the €200 charge for 2013 can be paid between 1st of April 2013 and 30th June 2013.  If payment is not received by 30th June, 2013, a €20 late payment fee will apply in respect of each month or part of a month during which the charges remains unpaid.
