Ireland Self Assessment Tax Return

Ireland Self Assessment Tax Return

Ireland Tax

31st October is the deadline for filing Ireland self assessment tax returns.

Managing your tax affairs and keeping abreast of all the latest tax rules can be a challenge.  A source of clear, practical and professional tax advice is imperative in ensuring regulatory compliance, minimising your tax liability and protecting yourself from any penalties.

You are required to complete a tax return if you are self-employed or have received income such as:

  • profits from rents
  • investment income
  • foreign income and foreign pensions
  • maintenance payments made to separated persons or where civil partnerships are dissolved
  • other income not subject to PAYE
  • profits from exercising various Share Options/Share Incentives
  • capital gains

We have a dedicated team that will work alongside you in making sure your tax return is completed accurately, submitted promptly and ensuring the correct amount of income tax and PRSI is paid, together with any preliminary taxes for the current year. Most importantly, our team will ensure that your tax return is prepared and submitted to the Revenue Commissioners by the deadline of either 31st October, for paper returns, or by 13th November when paying and filing using ROS.

Following the above dates, if you fail to file and pay, you will face a surcharge which will be added to the total tax due as follows:

Length of delay

Amount Payable

2 months

5% of the tax due or €12,695, whichever is the lesser amount

Over 2 months

10% of the tax due or €63,485, whichever is the lesser amount




Tax law also provides for both civil penalties and criminal sanctions for the failure to make a return, the making of a false return, facilitating the making of a false return or claiming tax credits or allowances which are not due.

Interest & Penalties

If you do not pay the tax you owe for the previous tax year on time, the more you delay, the more you will be required to pay.
