A self-employed individual who works part-time is taxed at a fixed rate of 10%. This tax is final, therefore the income derived from part-time work need not be declared in the annual income tax return because it is not subject to further tax. It is applicable up to a maximum net profit of €12,000 per annum.

What you'll get

The benefit of not having your part-time work from self-employment being added up to your main full-time employment income and thus being taxed at a normally higher tax rate than 10%.


In order to qualify one must be employed full-time, be a pensioner or a full-time student/apprentice. One also has to satisfy the following conditions:
i) Have registered the part-time work with Jobsplus.
ii) Do not engage more than 2 employees (and such employees shall be on a part-time basis) in your part-time activity.
iii) Must keep proper books of accounts.
iv) Perform such work for a company, organisation, enterprise or entity other than that with which you are employed on full-time basis.
