Primary Surplus Target
Origins of the Irish Crisis
• Sustainable export-led growth of the Celtic Tiger period gave
way to expansion reliant on a property bubble
2002-2006
• Ireland had been running a budget surplus and low debt
levels but domestic bubble burst at the same time as the
2007-2008
global financial crisis
2010
• Powerful and sudden impact on our domestic banking
system, on employment, and on government deficits and
debt, necessitated EU-IMF programme of assistance.
2011-
• Now on road back to sustainable growth and balanced
finances with a smaller, well-capitalised banking system

Consolidation is being implemented in the least
growth damaging way possible, with the majority of
the adjustment on the spending side
Budget 2013 includes just under €2 billion in spending cuts
and over €1.4 billion in tax increases.
Expenditure cuts in 2013 include
- reduction of €10 a month in the rate of
child benefit
-the reduction of the duration of job
seekers benefit
- further reform of public service conditions
Tax measures include
- introduction of a property tax
- increases in capital gains and capital
acquisitions tax
- increase in excise duty on alcohol and
cigarettes
- increase on motor and vehicle taxes
12.5% Rate of Corporation Tax will remain as a key element
supporting inward investment and export-led growth
