Non principal private residence charge

The Local Government (Charges) Act 2009 introduces a €200 annual charge on non principal private residences (NPPR), payable by the owners to the local authority in whose area the property concerned is located.

Payment is due by 30 June. A €20 per month, per property, late payment fee will apply from 1 July in respect of each month for which payment is overdue.
There are a number of ways in which you can pay, if you are the owner of a property liable for this charge.
