How Secure is Your Password?
by Seamus Parfrey

 
Seamus Parfrey

I recently found out that my computer password takes eight seconds to crack. After changing it and making it more robust it will now take about eighteen tredecillion years to unlock. A tredecillion is ten followed by fourteen zeros. Check how long it will take to crack your password at howsecureismypassword.net.

You can also check at shouldIchangemypassword.com to see if your password has been compromised and needs to be changed arising from databases having been released by hackers to the public.

Taxation of Civil Partnerships
by Orla Linehan

Included in the Finance (No. 3) Bill 2011 are the taxation changes arising from the Civil Partnership and Certain Rights and Obligations of Cohabitants Act 2010. The Bill is expected to be enacted in July, once debated and passed by both Houses of the Oireachtas and signed into law by the President.

Once enacted, it will mean that civil partners will generally be treated the same as married couples for tax purposes. They will be able to apply for joint assessment and transfer any unused tax credits or tax bands subject to the usual limits.

The Revenue Commissioners are in the process of updating forms, information leaflets and guides to reflect the proposed changes. In the meantime, they have produced a useful FAQ document .

If you have any queries on how to apply for joint assessment or other issues in relation to taxation for civil partners or married couples, please do not hesitate to contact me on 021 4310 266 or orlal@parfreymurphy.ie.
