Harry Fehily, Managing Partner, commented,

“HOMS is delighted to see the Government continue its commitment to the development of Limerick and the Mid-West region through the establishment of the Limerick Twenty Thirty Strategic Development DAC. It is crucial for the strategic expansion of Limerick City and the wider Mid-West region that it can offer world-class commercial, retail, enterprise, and education facilities, as well as residential space in order to attract international companies to locate to Ireland and, specifically, the Mid-West region. HOMS continues to work closely with its domestic and international clients to assess the risks and opportunities which will be presented by Brexit. HOMS looks forward to working in conjunction with the other relevant stakeholders in the local authority, the IDA and its substantial client base, including developers, to foster the anticipated economic, social and physical renaissance of Limerick city centre, the wider county and the Mid-West region.”

Temporary regulations issued on early election of new partnership audit rules

The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 (BBA) provided for new partnership audit rules that significantly change the way IRS partnership audits will be handled.
