HRI for homeowners and landlords

Overview

Note

You cannot claim for any work carried out or paid for after 31 December 2018. 

The only exception to this closing date is if planning permission was in place by 31 December 2018. If so, work carried out between 1 January 2019 and 31 March 2019 will qualify for the relief.

The Home Renovation Incentive (HRI) is a relief from Income Tax (IT) for homeowners, landlords and local authority tenants. You can claim the HRI Tax Credit for repairs, renovations and improvements to your home or rental property.

To be eligible for HRI:

The HRI is an online only scheme for homeowners and landlords. If you pay tax through PAYE, use myAccount to claim the HRI Tax Credit. If you pay tax through self-assessment, use Revenue Online Service (ROS) to claim the HRI Tax Credit.

If you are a local authority tenant you should contact your Revenue office.
