Relocating within Ireland

Not a lot of people know this, but if you’re relocating within Ireland then there are a number of expenses you can claim which will boost your retention rate over the first few months of your new contract. The more popular ones are the cost of your travel to your new location, the cost of your hotels, B&B’s initially, and then the cost of your rent for a period of time.

If relocation is required to take up a role, considerable expenses applicable to your move can be claimed. You’ll benefit from immediate tax relief as we offset these against your pay.

Relocating to Ireland

Although we’re a small country, we’ve a huge amount to offer. Granted, the weather is not great, but the people are lively and the craic is mighty. Before you get to experience all that though there are a few things you’ll need to do first. Here we have set out some guidance for you;

Right to Work:

Unless you’re an Irish citizen or the holder of an EU passport, you’ll need to get a visa or work permit if you want to work in Ireland. A Visa is applied for through the Irish Department of Justice & Equality. We advise companies, recruitment agencies and individuals on the best visa types for contracting.

Personal Public Service (PPS) Number

This is a unique social insurance number and you will need this to work in Ireland. You can apply for a PPS number in person (or in some circumstances via correspondence) through an Intreo Office. Contracting PLUS will provide information on the documents needed and details for the appointment centre.

Opening a Bank Account

We can directly support you in this and will recommend a bank for you to open your personal bank account.
