If you would like to give an employee a well deserved bonus then look no further as The Chamber is encouraging Employers who buy vouchers as gifts for their employees (e.g. for Christmas or performance-related payments throughout the year) to buy these so we can keep money local. Under the Revenue Commissioners approved ‘Small Benefit Exemption’ scheme, a company can award staff up to €250 as a once off payment that is tax free.  The scheme is very tax efficient for employers for amounts up to €250.

The vouchers can be used throughout the year for a wide range of purchases and services ranging from clothing, jewellery, restaurants, household fuel, and much, much more. They  are available in €10, €20, and €50 denominations and can be redeemed free of charge so if you buy €100 it will only cost you €100 and if you spend €100 worth of vouchers they are worth €100.

Vouchers can be bought in Dundalk Chamber Unit 4 Partnership Court, Park St. Dundalk or over the phone on Tel: 042 9336343. They are also on sale in Grants in Dublin St. and Mc Cusker’s in Earl St. You can also buy on line by visiting
