The Revised Estimates for Public Services 2013 provide that an amount of up to €150m is to be paid from the Local Government Fund to the Exchequer in 2013.

€46.5m transferred to the Exchequer from the Local Government Fund in 2012 in two tranches; €23.5m on 20 September 2012 and €23m on 13 December 2012. 2012 was the first year in which a payment to the Exchequer was made from the Fund.
