The Restaurants Association of Ireland (RAI) which represents over 700 restaurants with over 63,000 employees in the restaurant sector, today welcomed the many positive measures in the Government’s Jobs Initiative and the “decisive way in which the government has moved to support the tourism sector, boost confidence and get people back to work and revitalise the tourism sector.”
Air Travel Tax Reduction Abolished
The Restaurants Association also welcomed the plans to abolish the €3 travel tax. “Abolishing the air travel tax will further enhance Ireland’s offering. The airlines must also play their part in making Ireland as attractive a destination as possible for overseas tourists.”
Lower PRSI rate
Mr Cummins also welcomed the 50% reduction in the lower PRSI rate from 8.5% to 4.25% on jobs paying up to €356 per week (with effect from 1 July).
