IFA President John Bryan has said that any proposal for a mandatory increase to PRSI for the self-employed would place an unfair additional cost on self-employed workers and must be rejected.

“There will be a negative impact on output and employment if the self-employed sector is unfairly forced to take on the burden of increased income taxes and charges through further increases in PRSI. The Government must instead concentrate on supporting enterprise and growth in this sector,” said the IFA President.
