Written answers (Question to Finance)

It is assumed that the Deputy is referring to capital allowances in respect of qualifying private hospitals.

I am advised by Revenue that information in respect of the tax cost in respect of this property based tax relief can be found for the years 2011 to 2016 on the Revenue website at

https://www.revenue.ie/en/corporate/information-about-revenue/statistics/tax-expenditures/property-reliefs.aspx.

The cost for 2017 will be published during 2019 when all returns for that year have been analysed.
