Money Money Money
When looking to work in Ireland, you are going to need to set up an Irish Bank Account in order to have access to your wages/salary and the great thing is, you are spoilt for choice as there are... a number of banks in Ireland. Of course the most common are:
To open an account is easy really, you just need proof of address which can be a phone, electricity or gas bill (which will have your Irish home address). But if you are still on the house hunt, many banks are willing to accept an official employment contract as proof of address, which you can get as soon as you secure the language job in Ireland.
When looking to live and work in Ireland it can be easy, especially for an EU citizen, because to work in Ireland you do not need a work permit.
BUT it is important to set up a PPS Number (Personal Public Service Number) mainly for taxes and welfare.
With a PPS Number you will have to pay taxes such as:
- PAYE (Pay As You Earn)
- PRSI (Pay Related Social Insurance)
- USC (Universal Social Charge)
