Exchequer Returns shows surplus at the end of November for first time since 2007 Back
December 2nd 2015: An Exchequer surplus of €343 million was recorded at end-November 2015, compared with a deficit for the same eleven month period of €5.758 billion in 2014, a turnaround of over €6bn in the year while end November tax receipts were €739 million (11.9%) higher when compared to the same month in 2014.
Commenting on the exceptionally strong tax receipts, the Minister for Finance Michael Noonan T.D. said:

“The Exchequer Statement for end November shows a strong performance across all major tax heads. With one month remaining in 2015, €41,972 million in tax revenue has been collected, €2,942 million ahead of target and up €3,815 million when compared to the same period last year. As has been the trend throughout the year, Corporation Tax receipts have been particularly strong, finishing the month €312 million or 24% above target. The Revenue Commissioners have advised me that this over-performance is primarily related to improved trading conditions and is broad based.

November is an important month for VAT returns, and when compared to the same period last year, receipts are now up €934 million or 8.6%. . This is a reflection of improved consumer confidence and increased retail sales for the year to date”.

Commenting on the expenditure performance, Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform Brendan Howlin T.D. stated:

“Our end year deficit is now set to exceed our budget day prediction by a full percentage point. To date, we have spent €48.2 billion to fund day to day public services and invest in our infrastructure.

I am satisfied that our end year expenditure outrun including supplementary estimates will be under the estimate set on budget day. We are now borrowing money only for investment purposes – we are meeting day to day revenue from day to day income. That will feed into a better position for next year. Given the disastrous position we inherited from Fianna F�il in 2010 it is a remarkable turnaround”.
