This paper provides a comprehensive comparison of the financial incentive to work in Ireland and the UK. It uses closely harmonised tax and benefit microsimulation models for both countries, based on
household survey data, to provide an accurate and representative picture of the financial incentive to be in employment and to progress facing key groups in both countries.
