        'intentionally causing injury' was the term I saw but yeah, same thing I guess.

            Did they establish if he was just stupid, or was it actually done with malicious intent?

Akin to leaving a WhatsApp group I think of old school mates, where the penny drops and you realise in actuality these people are exactly that old school mates and not the attached relationships of old. Be well all.

              OLD people have problems that you haven't even considered yet!

              An 85-year-old man was requested by his Doctor for a sperm count as part of his physical exam.

              The doctor gave the man a jar and said, 'Take this jar home and bring back a semen sample tomorrow.'

              The next day the 85-year-old man reappeared at the doctor's office and gave him the jar, which was as clean and empty as on the previous day.

              The doctor asked what happened and the man explained, 'Well, doc, it's like this--first I tried with my right hand, but nothing. Then I tried with my left hand, but still nothing..

              'Then I asked my wife for help. She tried with her right hand, then with her left, still nothing. She tried with her mouth, first with the teeth in, then with her teeth out, still nothing.

              'She even called up Arleen, the lady next door and she tried too, first with both hands, then an armpit, and she even tried squeezin' it between her knees, but still nothing.'

              The doctor was shocked!'You asked your neighbor?'

              .'
              SPOILER
              The old man replied, 'Yep, none of us could get the jar open

                You run into tax issues with this pretty damn quick, that's the problem. Imagine the hit to the Irish exchequer if this became allowable.

                Believe me, if companies could do it, they would.

                  My missus' new gig is for a 100% remote small tech company. They have actual full-time employees in US and UK due to sufficient numbers so it made sense to have companies there. However, the rest of the world staff are essentially independent contractors who manage their own local tax liabilities. If they reach a certain headcount in Ireland (or another country) they'll consider opening an local company. The US/UK crowd do get some extra benefits but the RoW crew has a better basic package from what I understand.

                  I have a mate returning from Spain soon as otherwise, he breaks the 6-month rule for tax residency. He's been a contractor for a few different tech gigs over the years. He said it's a major ball-ache to deal with formally "re-locating" permanently and sorting out tax liabilities. In an ideal situation, he'd prefer to be some sort of digital WFH nomad, spending 3-6 months in different countries without having to stay 6 months in Ireland.

                    i doubt big well established companies will ever allow this tbh. just a nightmare from a tax/hr/insurance perspective.

                    i tried to get my company to sign off on me going to France and working from there in the 2 week period between my 2 holiday breaks in July and august. they were having none of it. This is them just being lazy and applying a one size fits all ban on this type of thing as 2 weeks is irrelevant from a tax perspective.

                      Nah you don't actually run into tax issues all that quickly at all. This is a myth. Show me a single European example of a company actually being charged location tax for one of their workers spending two months working in a country?

                      Whats going to happen is that some newer companies will realise how they can get all the good staff by integrating this as a policy (one in five Dublin workers is non-Irish European?) and they're going to hoover up all the good staff.

                              if you are employed by an Irish company, there are strict Revenue rules around that

                                I can't see this ever being solved without a common European tax base (which would completely fuck Ireland as a location).

                                So be careful what you wish for.

                                    Its clearly talking about residency there, which is normally interpreted as 180 days plus 1 in a year. Not small stays, like working from abroad for a summer. I'm not saying companies haven't interpreted as meaning there can be no working abroad, I'm saying those companies are wrong.

                                    If you can definitely work abroad for a day (which you do in your frequent Rotterdam visits), but 180 days plus 1 equals foreign residency, then the issue is not whether you can or can't work from abroad, as people already frequently work from abroad on business trips, but rather the issue is for how long you can work from abroad.

                                      Residency is a major part of the tax rules so can be very complicated.

                                      Remember when I was working in USA, I had to keep track of the different states visits due to state tax rules as had to keep track of days spent out of the state.
                                      ​​​​​​
                                      it is a very complicated area and can't be dismissed as easily as you make it out to be. Once the new normal kicks in, it will be definitely some kind of Flexi working model, with smaller office space and 2/3 days in and out. So still will be very much be local employment.

                                        We have had people employed on full time contracts working at home permanently from at least a dozen countries over the last decade. Some may be hired out of SA or Dubai offices but most would be out of here. Must be some pain in the ass for HR and payroll people but then I don't hear any complaints from anyone. There was one guy I wouldn't have many dealings with just disappeared from the office years ago and I only recently realised he never left but has been WFH in Argentina for nearly ten years!

                                            Plenty of people in my company have been working from abroad from home since before this. We have people in Australia, France, UK, US. We only have offices in Ireland and the US.

                                            Even as a grad they offered me full time remote work from Amsterdam as they heard my girlfriend lived there.

                                              Yeah but the point being it's not something that is in the gift of individual companies - if they sign Irish contracts with local employees, then they have to comply with the Revenue rules.

                                                Are you missing the point? This is about employees in Ireland who might want to work abroad say for a summer sipping on Bordeaux instead of Guinness. A lot of companies seem to be saying that isn't possible, and in general working abroad isn't possible. Yet people already do work from abroad - for example on business trips. So the idea that it isn't possible is clearly wrong. The people who say it isn't possible seem to really mean 'I don't want to do this', or maybe are confusing short stays with the implications of someone actually living abroad for long enough for them to count as resident abroad (over six months in year).

                                                  Employed in that sense surely has a specific meaning and doesn’t excluding working from abroad.
                                                  Working from aboard you simply become a contractor. As a contractor, tax is your own responsibility to settle with the tax office i wherever you reside. People having been working that way for a decade or more.

                                                      Companies can also be fined for using contractors who have not established themselves correctly.
                                                      Just as tenants can be liable for out-of-state landlords and are do pay tax to Revenue at source.

                                                      I'm lucky, my company set up an Irish office for me specifically to allow me to be tax resident in Ireland but work for the company in UK still.

                                                      They explored the self-contracting option, but were concerned that UK tax law would consider me an employee even if I were explicitly contracting as a self-employed worker of an Irish shell company.

                                                          I'm lucky, my company set up an Irish office for me specifically to allow me to be tax resident in Ireland but work for the company in UK still.

                                                          They explored the self-contracting option, but were concerned that UK tax law would consider me an employee even if I were explicitly contracting as a self-employed worker of an Irish shell company.

                                                          Yeah - in a year or two that's exactly what you'll be able to, as babs will be up and ready for a party. Easy enough to organise nannies anywhere also.

                                                          We need to get out of this mindset of having to stick to the one place.

                                                            My place has made some big changes to their WFH policy and also their dress code.

                                                            You can now work from home for a max of 26 days per year (if your role suits working from home) but you cannot work more than 3 days in a row from home.

                                                            Also, we now no longer have to wear ties unless we are meeting with customers (online zoom/teams calls with a customer counts as a meeting)

                                                            Big changes, some people say they've never seen bigger changes, I think they are big changes, possibly the biggest ever.

This is about employees in Ireland who might want to work abroad say for a summer sipping on Bordeaux instead of Guinness. A lot of companies seem to be saying that isn't possible, and in general working abroad isn't possible. Yet people already do work from abroad - for example on business trips. So the idea that it isn't possible is clearly wrong. The people who say it isn't possible seem to really mean 'I don't want to do this', or maybe are confusing short stays with the implications of someone actually living abroad for long enough for them to count as resident abroad (over six months in year).
                                                                Find us the revenue rules and we can take it from there.
                                                                I've seen this in action many times ("hey boss, can I work from Portugal for the winter? "emmm sure, I don't really give a fuck as long as you do the work but let me check with HR"...."dummmmdidummm, they say no way - revenue rules")

I get the six month point - that counts as residency, but I don't think there's any rules before that.

There's no real shortage of physical land either. What gives land value is not scarcity, but scarcity in places that people want to live. What I think is: why wouldn't it be the same in virtual land? Sure its technically unlimited, but there's only going to be a few places that people actually want to live (virtually) and the value will be attached to those places. So you can have scarcity despite it being unlimited.

                                                                                            There are all sorts of potentially nasty tax implications, both personal and corporate. And a few further legal ones.

Myself & the fiancee took a little adventure out to it yesterday and it was a great trek around the place, took my camera with me so got some nice photos of the waterfall. Recommend for anybody looking to take in some new scenery.

                                                                                                                  I'm just excited to get back to work after 15 months

I'm not sure there's an exemption from that even for vaccinated people? I wonder if a GP could do you a favour? Otherwise you should be normally due to get the first shot within about three weeks, as a decent guess.

Bit of a joke that the fact he lives a little outside of the constituency is used to denigrate him, it's not like he lives in Kerry or something!

Maybe renting a 60sqm apartment in a slightly decent area - €2,000 minimum. How are you defining 'wealthy' in this situation, when they've €4,200 expenses before even getting to the supermarket to buy food. Maybe €6,000 a month then just to cover your basic costs - before you even think of leaving the house for a meal or heaven forbid a holiday. Why would you want to take away their small tiny piddling bit of child benefit that is but a drop in the ocean compared to their childcare costs? Oh and they are also paying 50% marginal income tax. And then they have to read stories about how lucky they are and they should give up the one tiny benefit they have while they work two full-time jobs to just barely make ends meet.

                                                                                                                          I'd say you'd need to be on up near €150,000 a year in family income before you could consider someone wealthy enough to not need child benefit. And there's such a small number of people on that (mainly with grown up kids, so not receiving SW benefits) that it would cost far more to collect than it gains.

I don’t know how average earning people manage living in Dublin with a couple of kids. No wonder people have fuck all savings and can’t manage a minor unexpected bill.

                                                                                                                          I have a guy working for me with his wife working full time in the charity sector. I’d say the combined family income is about 130-140k. Two kids under 6.

                                                                                                                          He’s currently buying a 3 bed house on the north side (with potential to turn into a 4 bed) for ~750k (using trading up house equity and a max mortgage for 30 years). Bank put him through the ringer to get the mortgage. Pin of his collar to get it.

                                                                                                                          It’s mad stuff.
