Tax Relief

Tax Relief is available on Beechfield Home Care, in all its forms. You can save either 20% or 41%, depending on the higher rate of tax that you pay. Tax Relief up to a maximum of €50,000 can be claimed in any one tax year.

How do I claim?

Our Home Care Managers will take you through the process and the necessary paperwork to ensure you receive the maximum tax relief in the way that best suits you.

Can more than one person claim?

Yes. It is common for various members of a family to contribute to the costs of caring for a loved one. When this is the case, Tax Relief (up to a maximum of €50,000 p.a.) may be shared out in accordance with each person’s contribution and their upper tax rate.

Who can claim?

You can claim, as can your spouse and your relatives. A relative includes a relation by marriage and any person for whom the claimant is/was the legal guardian.

Can you give me an example?

A Beechfield Carer dedicates 15 hours a week to providing Catherine with Personal Care at home. Her daughter is invoiced €375 for the week’s care (an hourly rate of €25 x 15).

Tax Relief Saving (when 41% applies) 153.75
You Pay – Net Care Figure 221.25

Because Catherine’s daughter is eligible for 41% Tax Relief, the net hourly rate reduces from €25 to €14.75, a significant saving for the family.

Is there a VAT charge?

No, Beechfield Home Care is VAT-exempt.
