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 properties that are not occupied as their principal private residence (main/sole residence). 

Liability to pay the charge is determined by ownership of a relevant property on the “liability dates” (31st July 2009, 31st March 2010, 31st March 2011, 31st March 2012 and 31st March 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.

The amount owing if an individual did not pay the charge but owned an NPPR property from 2009 - 2013 is now €7,230.
