Rent-a-Room Scheme

Where a room in a persons’ principle private residence is let as residential accommodation and the gross annual rental income is less than €10,000 per annum this rental income is exempt from tax. Where it exceeds €10,000 the rent is taxable in full.

Qualifying room rentals will not affect entitlements to claim mortgage interest relief. It will also not effect CGT relief on Principle Private Residence on the disposal of the dwelling, and will not lead to a stamp duty claw-back. The relief will not apply where the letting is between connected parties and rent relief is being claimed.
