Written answers (Question to Finance)

The Help to Buy incentive (HTB) is scheduled to expire on 31 December 2019. This is provided for in Section 477C of the Taxes Consolidation Act 1997. As is normal practice, the role and operation of the incentive is due to be examined in the context of the forthcoming Budget and Finance Bill process. It would be premature to anticipate the outcome of such an examination.
