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 where family and friends are employed,” he added.

Not only does Michael want members of the public to buy these vouchers for their loved ones on special occasions, but he would also encourage local companies to buy these vouchers for their staff as Christmas Bonuses or Performance Bonuses throughout the year as they can save 56% on staff rewards by giving employees a Shop Local Gift Voucher instead of cash.

Companies can reward their staff with a €500 tax free payment as you are entitled to give one each and every year under the Small Benefits Exemption Scheme. The Company Directors and Employees can receive a non-cash bonus of up to €500 in value on a completely tax free basis each year.

As the payment must be in a non-cash form, the most common way to avail of this scheme is by purchasing gift vouchers. By buying the “Shop Local Gift Vouchers” not only can you save money by taking advantage of the Government Small Benefit Exemption Scheme but it is also a fully deductible business expense for your company.

If you haven’t availed of the Small Benefit Exemption Scheme so far in 2016, Michael  encourages you do so before 31st December and use Shop Local Gift Vouchers for this.
