Question to the Minister for Finance (Mr Michael Noonan, TD)
To ask the Minister for Finance if he will provide details on moneys accruing to the State from sporting clubs and bodies across the country; and if he will make a statement on the matter. – Jerry Buttimer.
For WRITTEN answer on Tuesday, 8th October, 2013.
I am interpreting the Deputy’s question to mean monies accruing to the State from Sporting Clubs and Bodies in respect of taxes, social insurance contributions and universal social charges, etc.
I am informed by Revenue that it is not possible to extract the information required, given the broad nature of the Deputy’s request. Details of such payments by Sporting Clubs and Bodies are not maintained under any generic heading that facilitates electronic extraction of information and would therefore require very extensive manual compilation to produce. The scale of the task would be such that it would require a considerable re-assignment of resource.
