Help To Buy

Help-To-Buy Scheme (HTB)

The Help to Buy scheme is a government incentive for first-time buyers. It will help you with the deposit you need to purchase a new house or apartment. You must purchase the property to live in as your home.

Where you meet the required conditions, you will receive a refund of:

  • Irish Income Tax
  • Deposit Interest Retention Tax (DIRT) you paid in Ireland.

The refund will be from the four tax years prior to when you make your application. This is an incentive for first-time buyers and will help you with the deposit you need to purchase a new-build worth up to the sum of €500,000. The funds will go towards your deposit, up to a maximum of €30,000, 10% of the purchase price of the home or the amount of income tax you have paid in the four years prior to your application.

Am I eligible?

  • You must be over 18 years old
  • You should be a first time buyer intending to live in the property for at least 5 years
  • Be a PAYE taxpayer
  • Borrowing at least 70% of the value of the home
  • Buying before the 31st December 2024

The 3 steps to the process are:

  1. The application stage
  2. The claim stage
  3. The verification stage
