What is & isn't a Principal Private Residence in the view of Revenue

    I bought a house in Ireland in 2001, moving to Australia in 2008. It's been rented out since.

    I've wondered how I'd be taxed, were I to sell the property. Having looked at the Revenue website I found an interesting line,

    "Absences considered as living in the property

    You will be considered to have lived in your property where:

    • you had a job, all the duties of which were performed outside the Republic of Ireland"

    Unless I'm mistaken, this seems to work in my favour and could prove to be indefinite as we've no plans to come home.

    I'm wondering if anyone's gone through this process and come up against any issue?
