“From March 2, 2014, no new late payment penalties have been applied to the amount of €4,220 that is outstanding, however, from September , 2014, the amount of €4,220 will increase to €7,230 and will remain frozen at this amount”.

Mr Martin is urging all property owners who have yet to register and pay their NPPR liability to do so before the August 31.
