Saturday, 30 June, is the final deadline for payment of this year’s €200 Non- Principal Private Residence (NPPR) charge.
You can pay this charge online at http://www.nppr.ie. Thankfully the online payment facility is excellent and easy to use.
If you have used the website to pay your liability in earlier years, just login on the homepage and you will be prompted for your Account Reference code and PIN password. If you don’t have these details handy, click on the ‘Lost Account Ref’ and ‘Lost PIN’ buttons and these will be emailed to you. You will need your PPS number to retrieve your Account Reference code.
Once you log in, you will see details of your registered property or properties. Then follow the remaining links and pay by credit card or laser/debit card.
If you haven’t used the site before, go to the ‘New Customer’ area of the home page, click on the ‘New Account‘ button and follow the steps to enter your personal and property details and pay the charge. In my experience, the process should take only about 5 minutes or so. If you have queries, you can access more detailed instructions by following the FAQs (frequently asked questions) link on the NPPR homepage.
From 1 July onwards, an extra charge of €20 per month will apply to late payments.
