Property continues to be a focal point of Irish life and conversation. We all buy, sell or rent or just work, live or play in properties. The complex housing crisis continues, with the supply of homes in urban areas now critically low.

CPA Ireland is delighted to invite you to attend this hugely topical event here our offices in 17 Harcourt Street, Dublin.  Our speakers, all experts in this field, will deliver a range of presentations on related topics relevant to today professional accountant and business advisor.

A new survey of global property prices finds Ireland is Europe’s “austerity star performer”. The study finds that the State was the world's sixth-fastest-growing property market in the year to September 2017 behind countries such as Iceland and Canada, making property a key pillar of the Irish economy.

As expected, property featured significantly in Budget 2018 as the government come to terms with the housing shortage. Mortgage interest relief for individuals with loans taken out in the period between 2004 and 2012 is being continued to 2020 with an increase on the rate of stamp duty on commercial property transactions from 2% to 6% effective from 11 October 2017. In relation to commercial property recent proposals in Budget 2018 cut the holding period for the capital gains tax exemption to four years.
