Launched only a year ago – President of Dundalk Chamber of Commerce Michael Gaynor is delighted with the success of the Shop Local Gift Vouchers to date. “With just under €250,000 sold to date in our first year they have been a resounding success. These vouchers help to keep money in the local economy and help protect local jobs. Launched only twelve months ago, the Chamber plan to build on this year even more in 2016”
With over 190 shops and businesses now redeeming these vouchers there is a wide range of shops and businesses where you can spend them including Restaurants, Hair Salons, Gift Stores, Gyms, Beautician, Clothes shops and much more. These vouchers are the ideal for occasions such as Weddings, Birthdays, Communions, Confirmations and Anniversaries.
Michael would also encourage local companies to buy these vouchers for their staff as Christmas Bonuses as they can save 56% on staff rewards by giving employees a Shop Local Gift Voucher instead of cash. They can reward their staff with a €500 tax free payment. You are entitled to give one each and every year. Under the Small Benefits Exemption Scheme, company directors and employees can receive a non-cash bonus of up to €500 in value on a completely tax free basis each year.
