I propose to take Questions Nos. 160 to 162, inclusive, together.

I am informed by the Revenue Commissioners that the estimated number of earners subject to USC, the number of earners exempt from USC and the number of earners paying USC in 2018 are available on page 3 of Revenue’s Ready Reckoner, which can be accessed at: www.revenue.ie/en/corporate/documents/statistics/ready-reckoner.pdf.

The Ready Reckoner estimates are based on 2018 incomes calculated from actual data for the year 2015, the latest year for which returns are available, adjusted as necessary for income, self-employment and employment trends in the interim. The estimates are provisional and may be revised. Estimates for 2019 will be available later this year.

Question No. 163 answered with Question No. 159.
