It’s that time of year again.

THIS YEAR’S BUDGET is based on the possibility of a no-deal Brexit, with Finance and Pubic Expenditure Minister Paschal Donohoe stating that it will be “safe”. 

It won’t be a big give away Budget, by any means, with a lot going into expected supports for businesses impacted by a crash out Brexit. 

There will be a carbon tax, but other tax cuts will be modest.

But, as always, there will be a push to increase spending in areas such as housing, health, education and crime prevention.

We want to know: What is most important to you in the Budget?
