Zoom Video Communications, Inc. has today (12.10.21) welcomed the Budget 2022 supports designed to help ensure the continued implementation of Ireland’s Remote Working Strategy. The measures announced by Minister for Finance, Paschal Donohoe TD include an income tax deduction amount to 30 per cent of the cost of unvouched expenses for heat, electricity and broadband incurred while working from home.
Commenting, Zoom Government Relations Director for Ireland, Charlotte Holloway said:
“The tax measures announced today alongside existing plans for nationwide remote working hubs and more support for rural economies represents a raft of visionary policies, grasping the nettle of how to make remote working part of the backbone of modern economic life after the pandemic.
“Zoom works with many businesses across Ireland who share the Government’s ambition to make remote working a permanent feature in the Irish workplace, and the determination to see this done in a way that maximises economic, social, and environmental benefits for Ireland. This approach is fast becoming an international example that countries right around the globe are looking to, as Governments and businesses alike look to support workforces with the right policies and technologies to equip them for the ‘new normal’. With Government, businesses and employees working hand in hand, Ireland truly has the potential to become the global leader in remote work.”
