Small job scheme ends
This is the last year you can make use of the so-caled small jobs scheme. This arrangement allows employees younger than 23 years old with a salary under a certain limit (€600 for 22 year olds) to not have to pay employee insurance premiums. They also exempt from paying health insurance premiums. The Minister has recently stated that this temporary regulation expires in 2012 so make the most of it while you can!
