Stay and Spend Scheme
The Stay and Save scheme provides a maximum of €125 in income tax credits to tax-payers who spend up to €625 in restaurants, pubs, hotels, B&Bs and other qualifying businesses.
Customers can spend on bills and claim back 20 per cent of their bill in tax credits.
It equates to €20 back for every €100 spent.
A couple can claim up to €250 back under the scheme.
The scheme comes into effect from October 1 and will be in place through to April 30 2021 - including over the Christmas period.
You do not need to be on a ‘staycation’ to avail of the scheme and can claim for expenses you paid in your local area once they meet the criteria
