NPPR Charge

Non Principal Private Residence (NPPR) Charge

Do you or did you own a property that is not your Principle Private Residence? If yes, have you paid the NPPR
charge which was in place between 2009-2013. Liability to pay the charge is determined by ownership of a relevant property on the ‘liability dates’ (31st July 2009, 31st March 2010, 31st March 2011, 31st March 2012 & 31st March 2013).

Laois County Council can still accept NPPR applications forms and payment for the charge which can be paid by
cheque, postal order, bank draft, credit or debit card. Please note cash cannot be accepted. The amount owing
is dependant of liability years owed, the amount currently owing if an individual did not pay the charge but owed the NPPR property from 2009-2013 is now €7,230. The NPPR charge ia a self assessment liability and owners of property will be required to determine and declare their liability.

Please note all Cheques/Drafts must be made payable to NPPR.

The Local Government (Charges) Act 2009, as amended by the Local Government (Household Charge) Act 2011,
introduced a €200 annual charge on non principal private residences, payable by the owners to the local authority in whose area the property concerned is located.

There is no NPPR Charge for 2014 & 2015.
