Schedule D Case III charges are governed by s.18(2) TCA 1997 and in summary concerns “charges [to] untaxed interest and income from foreign property” (Taxworld) basically, income from investing abroad which is not subject to tax at the source. S.18(2)(a)-(f), provides indication as to the types of incomes which are subject to a Case III charge. It is important to, take time to evaluate some of the six categories due to the fact that each contain a certain distinguishing factor from the others. To begin with s.18(2)(a), the first chargable income is on “any interest of money, any annuity or other annual payment”, this is one of the more common of the six and thus is important. The term interest of money has been defined in the case of Re Euro Hotel (Belgravia) Ltd. [1975] to contain two key requirements to classify something as interest these are, “a reference amount and sums due”(Bowler Smith p.158).

As domicile is such a concerning pre requisite it important to note that you domicile is something all individuals have be it by origin or choice, it mostly depends on someones nationality or where they spent most their life. Ireland has double taxation treaties with many countries which is beneficial to the Irish domiciled person with interests abroad as with double taxation, countries can agree to allow an individual to be subject to one countries tax as opposed to both. Subsequently if there is no double taxation treaty in place between one country and another country then the tax bill will be quite large for the Irish domiciled person. Under “[t]he Case III charge on interest from foreign securities and income from foreign possessions is modified in the case of non-domiciled persons and Irish citizens not ordinarily resident in the State so that the charge is confined to the sums actually remitted to the State under s. 71 TCA 1997,” (Maguire).
