Application Form Design for new school enrolment processing in Drogheda

Category : Uncategorized · No Comments · by 5th January 2018

“The biggest change in the primary educational system in Drogheda in decades will see the amalgamation of St Brigid’s and St Patrick’s girls and boys schools at Bothar Brugha into one school. New plans will also result in the introduction of a junior infants to sixth class model in both St Joseph’s CBS and the Presentation NS on the Ballymakenny Road. And parents wishing to send their children to the schools – including St Oliver’s NS, whose process remains unchanged – will now have to apply under a common application enrolment form. ‘The common application system makes provision for families to apply for enrolment in St Peter’s Parish schools and will provide a wider choice of school type for children of the parish with greater availability of access to the co-educational model,’ Archbishop Eamon Martin added in a statement this week.”

For VAT registered clients it’s not an issue as they simply reclaim the VAT however for unregistered clients it can make a big difference.

So, if VAT is a cost for your business, be sure that you’re not overpaying it.

Below are a sample of different VAT rates on printed products, taken directly from the Revenue website.
