Employers Support Local with a New Ross Chamber Shopping Voucher


Employers you can save on staff rewards by giving employees a New Ross Chamber Shopping Voucher instead of Cash this Christmas!

Under the Small Benefit Exemption Scheme. You can now provide employees with a non cash benefit up to the value of €500 once in every tax year, which is exempt from Income Tax, Universal Social Charge (USC) and employee and employer’s PRSI.

Our Shop Local Vouchers are an ideal way of using the Small Benefit Exemption to reward employees.

In 2014 over €200,000 New Ross Chamber Shopping Vouchers were sold and this is a guaranteed spend in the New Ross District, which is supporting local businesses and jobs.

As a community, we need to realise that our spending decisions this Christmas will directly impact on the job security of our friends and families. Every Euro we spend locally has a multiplier effect in our community that benefits us and the local economy.

The vouchers are available in denominations of €20, and €50 and are accepted in over 70 businesses in New Ross.

To the purchaser- the chamber will charge an administration fee of:-

  • 7% on the first €1,000.00 of any voucher order and 5% on any additional amount up to €4,000.
  • 5% on orders of €4,000 and over.
