Tax payment difficulties

Revenue is determined to maintain the current high levels of compliance notwithstanding the more difficult economic circumstances in which businesses and taxpayers are now operating. Therefore Revenue expects that taxpayers and businesses organise their financial affairs to ensure that they pay their tax debts by the due date.

Revenue also acknowledges that in the current economic slowdown some businesses and taxpayers are currently experiencing difficulties in meeting their tax payment obligations even where they are fully committed to so doing and in more favourable economic and financial circumstances did precisely that.

Revenue’s approach to individuals and businesses experiencing tax payment difficulties is set out in the documents below:
