We are getting Possibly free licences to retain workers as asked for by Reps we might be getting a scrappage scheme to retain drivers as asked for by reps and we will be allowed go to work where there is no work and claim the Puppy so we can compete with the few drivers that were surviving by making a few Lira .All in all Fuck All .

Workers drawing down the special pandemic unemployment payment or the temporary wage subsidy face tax bills of up to €2,800 at the end of the year, according to calculations from personal finance advisers.

That is on top of the loss in income running into thousands of euro for many workers as the weekly payment is below their normal take -home pay.

And most are not aware of it, the company says. It warns that January could see more than one million people who are in receipt either of the unemployment payment or the temporary wage subsidy “scrambling to balance their tax affairs”.

*And the self employed will have scant expenses or capital write offs to reduce their tax bills, according to one taxi driver who knows fuck all about this stuff*.

Not relevant .You take your earnings Pre Covid Early March then add in your Covid Payments and any other Earnings during your Fiscal year .Deduct Costs and Tax free allowances you will only pay tax on Profits above your allowances if any .I doubt many drivers will have earned 20K including Covid for the year deduct Fuel ,Insurance ,Phone .Maintainance Car Repayments .Tests ,Licences Most if not all Drivers will be carrying forward a Loss for 2020 .The problem might be covering last years bill due to lack of funds but I think you can lodge your return and do a deal on payment without any penalties due to the Pandemic .

So we can earn 120 a week and still claim. Thats good news. I'll be going back ASAP now. More to get out and about than for the money. I was afraid up to this point because there's no work but now we've nothing to lose. So does that mean drivers will be back in their droves thus diluting the bit of work that is there? Does it also mean that the drivers that are already back will now be claiming the pup? Not that I care too much, main thing is we can go back to work. Happy days.

....120 per week wouldn't even cover overheads in a taxi.You need 200 for an owner driver to break even which would exclude us from claiming the PUP.Maybe there are other things coming because so far there is no incentive to return to work.

"so far there is no incentive to return to work". Unless they look for a photo of your meter reading, and mileometer, before you go back to work, of course there is. Mmm, yes I forgot the apps, you'ld have to just work the streets, where there isn't even €120 worth of work, and they have the mileometer reading from the NCT. Still I reckon that a lot of guys will still try to game it..... more competition.

"so far there is no incentive to return to work". Unless they look for a photo of your meter reading, and mileometer, before you go back to work, of course there is.

Bob I'm talking about only being allowed to earn 120 net(i think) before you lose any eligibility for COVID funds.Cash work is thin on the ground.

Sorry I see you get me in your edited post.I wanna work but only if it's not for feck all.

I doubt you will get 120 a week but if it says 480 a month then work the app to get 480 then go back to the sofa .If most drivers return you wont get a ton a week on the app add in fuel and taxi insurance you might be up a score bit of a smoke and your broke again .

Would it not mean 120 a week AFTER expenses? Surely it does?

Yes, it’s €120 earnings not gross.

I would go back for an extra 120 a week after expenses,  fooking right I would. More to get out of the gaf and not lose my pup than anything else. 7 months sitting around in the house is getting to me mentally not to mention I've only 250 a week.  I'm delighted with this news.

Most of us would need to take in €250/300(renters even more) to net 120.If we take in €310 we're netting €130 which excludes us from the PUP.That's a very narrow window to operate in IMO.You are then hoping and praying that social welfare don't ask to see your accounts at some point.

Maybe there's something specific for taxis coming.Right now I'll stay on the €250.No effort required.Maybe look for some work into the hand after Xmas.

About VRT....Unless there is something specific for taxis it will cost more to import or buy a new hybrid/plug in hybrid as the reliefs have been taken away.

The road tax reduction for regular motorists doesn't apply to us.
Does that exempt you from having to be available to "take up employment"? Presumably so

Worry about yer audit when it comes. A good accountant will guide you through it as best he can and minimize yer dues. Failing that, tell em you'll pay 30 a month.

i'll say as soon as the finance bill is passed and signed by mick, you are safe to start work. also remember the 120 per week is gross income, not net income. so i would say approximately when your meter records 200 per week, you should head back to the sofa for the rest of the week.

Minister Paschal Donohoe has announced a range of measures to support the SME sector through the pandemic.

He said he was extending the debt warehousing provisions to allow self-employed taxpayers to defer payment for a period of a year with no interest applying.

A rate of 3% would apply thereafter and there would be no surcharge.

The provision would be extended to include the 2019 balance and 2020 preliminary tax.

Building on the measures introduced in the July Stimulus, the Minister said he was directing his department to coordinate a group comprised of representatives from the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Enterprise Ireland, the Ireland Strategic Investment Fund and the European Investment Fund.

The group, he said, would report to him by the middle of next month with proposals to leverage European capital and establish an equity fund with a mandate to invest in domestic, high innovation enterprises.

Pashal Donohoe said he was providing an initial €30m in funding through the Ireland Strategic Investment Fund (ISIF) to support an appropriate and effective scheme and thereby leverage matching funding for early stage seed and growth capital.

"In addition, as part of a continuing process of ensuring that our business supports remain efficient and responsive, my Department will this year initiate an assessment of how the Employment and Investment Incentive Scheme can be enhanced in light of the impact of the current crisis," the Minister said.

Self-employed people in receipt of the PUP will be able to earn up to €480 per month without losing their payment. The government has indicated that this measure will come into effect soon.

In a statement, Social Protection Minister Heather Humphreys said this measure will “give certainty to those workers in sectors like our taxi industry and our arts and entertainment sectors”.

I agree about the cash work and Freenow..was thinking about this yesterday.This could be an opportunity for working drivers to unite and turn off the app for a few months.Some big pubs are still cash only and they were jammed before the lockdown.There is a chance here to retrain the passengers to carry cash again.

Just to add the reason pubs and restaurants were/are cash only was to ensure they didn't go over the threshold for government Covid support.The passengers can get cash they just need to be encouraged.

It's been on the go a long time. Mostly youngsters use it, but some big people too. Don't think there's a catch, which you would be thinking there would be for that price. Can't remember if you are tied into a contract. Don't think you are though. I just think you can't carry over unused credit to the following month

It used to be unlimited everything.... there's another called GoMo. Ten a month it used to be. I joined about a year ago. They were advertising that they were an EIR service provider. It turned out they weren't. It was working fine. Never had a problem. Ended up leaving in the end. I just stuck to my regular plan because I was afraid of them maybe going bust out of the blue and leaving me stranded. I'd stick with the ol' reliables. They're still advertising on the way radio though, again targeting youngsters

You might be ranking up longer Jonno .The Women what run the North the way they are told to by Westminster might be told to close down the Portershops and Snooker Halls up North .Then The border counties might follow and go into Level 4 to try to stop the spread of the Ulster Virus .I think that means all non essential travel and shops shut down .Mary Lou and Pierce will be Doing a Trump and saying we had to stop the Spread of the Ulster Sickness so had to Close down the Border Counties .Reading between the lines it looks like we are no longer all in this togeather ,We are looking at more local lockdowns .Im sure the Government want Dublin open for christmas so they will try to stop the movement of people from badly infected areas .As I said earlier wait till after the finance Bill is passed .They couldnt do local lockdowns before that as they might lose a TD or Two who would vote against it if his county was to be locked down .

Aye I was listening to Leo (he's great) on Kenny a while ago. He intimated that stuff. Even a widespread increase to another level. The nordies are either on, or nearly on, their highest level but it's still only equivalent to our level 3. Probably all boils down to a childish row between the green and the orange. It's a good job they're not going North in their droves for the Xmas bottle of jemmy and the tin of USA biscuits anymore or they'd be bringing more than that home with them.

Jonno do you not speak Engerleish .What the Minister said was Self Employed can work and not lose their PUP .As Big Dommo would say that fucking youngfell of our kids announced on Facebook he was having a Gaff Party and every party goer in the country turned up .Lads were sitting at home afraid to go out with the roofsign on in case they lost the Poxwonga now they can go out and if they get two scores a day and a chance to moan on the rank they will save their sanity .

I'm noticing a theme on here recently where lads say they would rather work a ton of hours just to meet people everyday potentially with disease and earn fuk all.All the while making things worse for those drivers who need the money possibly more.

How could you gain sanity by working when you never had it?

Horsey I doubt very much you'll achieve 120 net in two or three shifts with most of the fleet working and most of the country locked down.Yer not thinking rationally IMO.You'll be doing six days for 120 net and that's how it will pan out unless they lift all restrictions.

I was never giving out about not being allowed to let me dog shit anywhere i wanted. I was talking to mr crow one day about exercising and walking me dog and you injected your usual moan into the conversation saying I hope yis pick up your dog shit. I had to explain, in a nice way,  that my dog shits in a field half way up the mountains, where NOBODY goes. But you keep banging on about it anyway, twisting stuff, as you say. If you had your way farmer's would be running around after their cows with a potato sack and a shovel picking up shite because that's how crazy you are. Quick, there's someone who's happy down the road there. Run down and depress the shite out of them with yer gick.

The common understanding of gross is before tax.

So its 480 after expenses then? Phew. Thought me little plan was out the window there. Nice one VD.

It's before expenses (the 480) if it was after expenses it would be Net.

We have been screwed over.The 480 a month after expenses is not worth a fiddlers fuck.
Gross=before tax,net=after tax
These are the established uses for the terms.
It clearly says earn €480 gross.

So it says 480 gross,so after you pay your fuel,insurance wear and tear and the usual shite out of it you are left with considerably less than the 480 gross you earned which will leave you with the net figure which goes into your phoca,why do you think you trouser 480 if it's gross 480 you're allowed earn?

Self-Employed workers, including those who work in arts/entertainment, taxi drivers and others, receiving the #Covid19 Pandemic Unemployment Payment are now able to earn €480 per month and retain their full PUP

Definition of earnings: Earnings are the amount of profit that a company produces during a specific period.

Gross earnings = gross income = pre-tax income

Occi Pluto is retrograde in Taurus at the moment and im sensing your angst .Is there a metaphysical realignment going on in your artistic temporal lobe .Im sensing great turmoil a reaching out I believe you are using your malevolent interaction with the Pony to stimulate your artistic juices .Im sensing that you are clasping for inspiration for your great work .Like Vinno living in a one roomed bedsit with bed and chair that he saw and painted out of perspective you are seeking inspiration and Pony is to be your muse .You said your off the Porter and spending more time with yer one that you stopped spending time with before you restarted spending time with .You mentioned your rollerskates but you havent told us of your cycling exploits in a while that sort of screams that you feel trapped no longer expressing your freedom of movement within a universal understanding of freedom of movement .Would you not consider jumping on to the bike and going over the river to meet Pony .A face to face interaction might inspire you to create a great work like Edvard Monks .

The Cabinet has signed off level four restrictions for Cavan, Monaghan and Donegal and have agreed a ban on household visits from Thursday night - except on compassionate grounds and essential reasons such as childcare.

This means a ban on household visits, weddings reduced to six people and the closures of hairdressers and barbers. People will only be allowed travel 5km from their home.

Pubs and restaurants will only be permitted to give delivery and takeaway service.

At a meeting this evening, ministers also agreed to ban all household visits nationwide.

Daly look at it from their point of view.Most taxi drivers are earning very little according to their returns.So they should be happy to sit on their arses for 250 a week.In fact I was saving 200 when I was on 350.

Years of suspected under declaring has put us in a position where we can't really ask for anything special.

Separately I don't really get the lads saying just work and claim you'll never be caught.If yer gonna have that attitude why bother paying for taxi insurance?.Why pay for petrol?Just drive off what's the worst that could happen.

Of course you will be caught, there are cnuts out there in taxis (without Roof Signs) working , the NTA would probably need proof in the form of a receipt to hammer these cnuts, or better still they might just knock on FN's door and ask for the working cabs list and pass this on to revenue

Although they're more likely to be reported by their fellow drivers.

I got paid the full grand yesterday.It took about 3 weeks.
Put down PPE purchased,safety screen,and cleaning products,insurance premium for the month you went back,a few weeks diesel,credit card terminal,any repairs to get your car back up working,any fees you had to pay like suitability,NCT etc,psv license fee.
The idea is to claim for more than the grand,so even if some of the items are disallowed,you still get the full whack.

I rang yesterday before applying to get info on that. I might as well have been talking to the back of me bollix. "I'll pass that on to the relevant person and you'll get a call before the day is out" Guess what....
Any filled out the online application. I'm watching my MyWelfare inbox like a hawk. If I see a quare number ringing I'll know there's a problem. That was a grant to help get you restarted. There shouldn't be a problem. I don't remember seeing anything in the fine print about returning it if the whole kip nosedived again. We'll see what happens.....

self-employed workers will be able to earn up to €480 a month gross and keep their Pandemic Unemployment Payment. The €480 limit is based on gross income (before tax and PRSI) minus expenses

how the fukk are yos saying earn up to 900?  Do yis not know what gross means  ?-it means 480 in total . How the fukk are yis making 900 out of that ?

Post by: sore on October 15, 2020, 04:35:40 pm
the 480 is your profit for the month dalyer not your fares.
here is the approximate breakdown for owner drivers dalyer:

fares for the month = 900
minus business expenses for the month:
fuel for the month   = 135
insurance                = 200
all other expensse  =  85  ( this is roughly 1000 for the year to cover nct, suitability, repairs etc)

fares minus business expenses should not be more than 480(your profit for the month)

It has to be "earnings", which is what you keep for yourself, and are taxed on. That is what you have left after what you spent to get that amount has been deducted.

Keep a running total and soon as you have 480 cash in your arse pocket (Inc daily expenses), go home and park the yoke up- in the driveway/street/ the flats underground car park- for the rest of the month/4 week period... whichever they say it is. Pathcal will take his chunk next October. Or whoever is the minister for coin by then.

480 pm averages €110.79 pw over 52 weeks. Surely there'd be no carrying of anything over to the next month. Unless one cannot make 117 pw in Dublin?

I got paid the full grand yesterday.It took about 3 weeks.
Put down PPE purchased,safety screen,and cleaning products,insurance premium for the month you went back,a few weeks diesel,credit card terminal,any repairs to get your car back up working,any fees you had to pay like suitability,NCT etc,psv license fee.
The idea is to claim for more than the grand,so even if some of the items are disallowed,you still get the full whack.

I’d imagine most drivers monthly deductibles would be €1000 a month before fn commission, so you’d be able to do a tad over €1500 monthly on the app and any bit of cash work that you can find... it’s better than sweet fcuk all
The figure I had in my head was about 1200 a month or 300 a week, the true figure is most likely somewhere in the middle.

Heather Humpries statement to the dail 16/10/2020
We have made changes to the PUP so that the self-employed can earn up to €480 per month without it impacting that payment. That change is effective immediately, so people on the PUP can avail of it today. I can confirm that the €480 relates to income from self-employment before tax but after business expenses have been deducted. We are also providing an additional €12 million for the €1,000 enterprise support grant for the self-employed. My Department is here to support and assist anybody who has lost his or her job. We have secured an additional €10 million on top of the €112 million secured as part of the July stimulus package to extend and enhance our suite of employment support measures and I will work alongside the Minister with responsibility for further and higher education, Deputy Harris, in that regard.

And, btw, NPHET are pushing for a 6 week lockdown.  The 6 weeks is prob a negotiating tactic and maybe 3 weeks is the 'settlement'.  Still, can't see anybody wanting a taxi anytime soon.

You'd be surprised how much you save by not working.Taxi insurance is 40/50 a week minimum.

Lads will end up in a situation where the Covid payment barely covers the cost of running the taxi and then they will be working for €50 a shift.So they'd be no better off unless they work 7 days for 12/13 hours a day.That's not exaggerating but that's all there will be available until all restrictions are lifted.

Don't forget there are still loads of lads who don't yet know they can legally work and claim.It will take a few weeks before they all get back out there.Only a small section of divers look in here.

Many drivers will put all their hopes into Christmas but I'd say the work xmas party plans are cancelled by now.A bit bleak really.

42 you done Ok in Cork but Dublin is Fucked .Offices closed,pubs closed .No sport or tourists wait for lockdown 4.2 with lads back on the empty streets doubt to many will turn over 300 a week before costs .The Government dont give either of their Fucks how much you earn and claim the Puppy Coin .The Limit is to stop full time Self employed working on sites .Tradesmen getting 300 a day as self employed then taking the piss by claiming the Puppy money .The 480 limit gives them a cut off .As you were all told by the Rodent you could always work and claim as long as your income was significantly impacted now they have closed off that loophole by limiting the amount you can earn .This change applies TO ALL SELF EMPLOYED WORKERS it is not designed just for taxi drivers .

Korky you havent a fucking bulls notion .Cork got away with little if any impact. In Dublin work is was and will remain fucked, down about 70% with only about 20% of the fleet active .You risked nothing as Cork Medical staff were hardly impacted neither were young Cork Students .There are probably quarter of a Million Dubs working from Home not using taxies the same amount not going out to Club.Pub or restaurants at weekends .This shite that Medical Staff risked their health or taxi drivers risked their health is TV bullshit I cant remember more than 6 or 8 cases of medical staff dyeing from contracting this disease probably about the same figure as dead plumbers or Mechanics .Korky if we go and Politically I dont think we will Level 5 you will get a taste of what the business has been like in Dublin and other parts of the country for the last 6 months .

The health impact on most drivers health wont be from ferrying HSE workers to and from their jobs it will be from stress .Wondering where the Mortgage payment or
car payment or food money is coming from .One part of your post is correct STAY SAFE running around like a headless chickens bragging about how much we earned or what Jewelery Free Now present us with every week is little more than giving a running commentary on your High pissing contest achievements .Lads being told they are lazy cunts because they cant get enough non existing work and dont complain are every bit as worthy of Appreciation for playing their part and staying home and STAYING SAFE .

That is not fair comment John M, both myself and Korky worked our bollocks off during this pandemic, I still can not afford to take a week off since last April. The work all summer was slow and hard and we had to chase work constantly. Myself and Korky shared a lot of information of how to achieve the best returns, much of which was posted on here but it was not easy work, there were many nights that saw myself and Korky feeding the birds the left-overs of our dinner alone on the Grand Parade Taxi rank whilst waiting on a FN job to pop up from anywhere in the city, but between us we worked it out and we did ok but it wasn't Fookin easy !

Eh Ken much of the country are on a Covid subsidy from their employer and the rest are on the Covid payment.Even the students that were getting 350 are on 200 now.So there just isn't as much disposable income as there was three months ago.

I agree, I am working but if I was still on the covid payment I would wait it out another while. I gave my mechanic 480 euro last week, then you have all the other costs, the 480 a month wont make up for all your other costs. I dont even bother working friday and saturday nights now, im not hanging around for 4 or 5 hours for 40 euro fcuk that. There will be vaccines in the new year and things will slowly get back to normal, we will be grand.

A lot of lads are caught by Mortgages ,car Loans ,Credit Cards ,Credit Unions Insurance ,Tax Bills .I posted on most of these but here is the advice .Prioritize ,Your Mortgage is the most important pay it if you can if you cant talk to your bank .It will cost you in the long run but see if you can go interest only for a while .The reason for this is as long as the interest is being paid the loan is a performing loan. Paying less than your full amount without the banks permission is the exact same as paying nothing .Talk to your Bank .Credit Cards are Unsecured if you need to default then Credit Cards are your best option .If you are not working and dont need the Car for family use then take Mercs advise cancel the insurance and park up .Your Credit union like your Mortgage will probably do an interest only deal for a few months for the same reason as long as they get the interest the loan is performing .Your tax bill can be warehoused .Car loans are up for a bit of debate .Your Loan is probably funded by the Car maker like VW or Scoda or Renault Credit they dont want the car back especially a Taxi they will do you a deal either on interest or repayment break if your in a bad place then stop paying the Car loan its unlikely the Courts will allow the lender repossess it as its the tool of your trade they will possibly order the lender to first offer to restructure .

I never got priority once and free now  seemed to be hit and miss
I even downloaded uber again got 5 jobs a week around town
The week I just done was crap I had worst sat nite ever last nite its ridiculous what I wot last nite

It depends what you mean by being better off, financially or mentally. mentally you are better off out working meeting people, having a routine etc. financially you might be better off on the covid payment short term but if you are off for a year, are you going to loose your regular customers? at least we have the option of working unlike the bar staff, hotel and cafe workers etc.

Your maths is wrong the population of Dublin isint 4 Million .......
My math is not wrong, after a bit of googling the population of Dublin city is about 1,250,000.
The population of Cork city is about 190,000, that puts Dublin at about 6.5 times our population.

As fer licensed taxies ye have about 11,000 while we have about 1,800 which is again about
 6.5 times more in Dublin than down here.

So on a pro-rata scale ye have about the same amount of taxies per person as Cork.

And by the way every pub, club and restaurant in Cork were also closed too fer many months,
as was every live or sporting event, it was a ghost town down here too fer many months.

Dont be messing around with the figures to make your false case ..the population of Cork for which you own a licence is ..At the last census in 2016, Cork city stood at 125,657. The population of the entire county is 542,868 making it the state's second-most populous county and the third-most populous county on the island of Ireland.My figures are more accurate even though I underestimated the population by about 150,000.

Dont be messing around with the figures to make your false case ..the population of Cork for which you own a licence is ..At the last census in 2016, Cork city stood at 125,657. The population of the entire county is 542,868 making it the state's second-most populous county and the third-most populous county on the island of Ireland.My figures are more accurate even though I underestimated the population by about 150,000.
Your figures are wrong, have a google off Cork city population 2020, it's at 190K.
Cork county does not count as I don't work there.

Not my problem where you work or dont work My figures for ratio of drivers to available customers is closer than yours ..

Your maths is wrong the population of Dublin isint 4 Million .......
My math is not wrong, after a bit of googling the population of Dublin city is about 1,250,000.
The population of Cork city is about 190,000, that puts Dublin at about 6.5 times our population.

As fer licensed taxies ye have about 11,000 while we have about 1,800 which is again about
 6.5 times more in Dublin than down here.

So on a pro-rata scale ye have about the same amount of taxies per person as Cork.

And by the way every pub, club and restaurant in Cork were also closed too fer many months,
as was every live or sporting event, it was a ghost town down here too fer many months.
