I dont think its 90 per day,I think its 75'i cant understand why your renting from a company where the NCT and suitability tests have to be done.why dont you rent from a company that has a car ready to go ?
To answer that, maybe he owns the vehicle but rents the plate so is getting another of his own vehicles on the road, hence the NCT and Suitability.

Insurance will have a peep at your tax returns, so if'n your claiming fer 90 a day then make sure your tax returns can back that up.

You are right DM, but there are ways around it, if'n the plate only renter signs his car over to the person renting the plate and the person renting the plate takes out insurance with the renter as a named driver, that is the usual way they go, and the person renting the plate gets about 50 a week fer doing F all, except filling out a few forms.

Only if you want more than the €90/day and, even then, a letter from your accountant should suffice. If you just want the €90 write a letter yourself - can be addressed to your solicitor if you are using one - stating that you understand this to be the rate applied by the main insurance firms.

I was offered €70, sent in my accounts, which allowed for more than the €90 which they subsequently paid. "You could have rented a car" as I had not opted to make a personal injury claim.

I don't think they are allowed make you use their repairer.... there's an ad on the wireless that says as much.

I suppose you can't really claim more than your tax return says.Same goes for mortgage applications.They'll only lend you money based on your returns not what you might earn.

I did... claim more than my tax return suggested I earn, that is.

Here's the letter I sent my solicitor, word for word. I got paid in full.

Re.   Loss of Earnings (RTA 30 March 2014)
   

Dear Nuala,

I confirm that I suffered complete loss of earnings for a period of 17 days as a result of the incident referred to. The insurance industry use a standard rate to assess loss of earnings for taxi drivers which I believe is €90/day. At that rate the loss suffered equates to €1530.





Yours sincerely,
