Revenue Update – Debt warehousing and Covid-19 supports

Last week Revenue began to write to taxpayers who are availing of debt warehousing and other Covid-19 supports. In relation to debt warehousing, Revenue are reiterating the need for all returns to be filed on time, even where warehousing is being availed of on payment. Any taxpayer availing of debt warehousing but does not have all tax filings up to date will be reminded to do so immediately or lose their entitlement to avail of the Debt Warehousing Scheme. Any returns outstanding will be brought to the taxpayers attention in the Revenue latest correspondence. For taxpayers availing of both Debt Warehousing and either the Employment Wage Subsidy Scheme or the Covid-19 Restrictions Support Scheme, they will be advised to bring any outstanding returns up to date within 21 days or their tax clearance will be rescinded and they will no longer be eligible for any of the support schemes. Revenue have also began a second stage of TWSS reconciliation, seeing employers who have availed of the scheme receiving a detailed reconciliation through ROS. Employers have until the end of June 2021 to review the information contained in the reconciliation by Revenue and accept, appeal or make any required adjustments to their claim by this date. It is also worth noting for taxpayers who are not availing of debt warehousing but do have tax liabilities outstanding that Revenue will seek to enforce debt collection of outstanding liabilities over the coming weeks as highlighted in a press release earlier this month. Finally, late filing surcharges for corporation tax returns had been suspended from March 2020, however Revenue have now confirmed that for corporation tax returns due between 23 March 2020 and 23 June 2021 (i.e. accounting periods ended between 30 June 2019 and 30 September 2020), will need to be filed by 30 June 2021. Corporation tax returns (including iXBRL financial statements if required) will be required to be filed on time from this period on to avoid late surcharges.

RN Podcast: 2020 – The Year that was, and 2021 potential for business growth

As we close out on 2020, we have produced a podcast where we take a look at the year that was, and provide our view on what businesses might expect in 2021. Aidan ScollardBrendan Kean and Derek Dervan, partners with Roberts Nathan discuss three main areas likely to impact Irish businesses as well as some tips when planning for 2021:
1. The implications of the Covid vaccine on Irish businesses. Cashflow and succession planning have become very important for business owners, however some good has come from Covid in terms of the opportunities it has created for doing business in a new way. It may also bring about potential M&A and real estate activity, and possible increased consumer spending in the year ahead.
2. Brexit and planning around UK businesses setting up operations in Ireland.
3. Budget 2021 Capital Acquisition and Gains taxes, Entrepreneurial Relief, Pensions and Retirement Relief.
Roberts Nathan podcast discussing 2020 the year that was, and why 2021 has potential for business growth for Irish SME businesses
We hope you enjoy listening to our podcast and if you have any questions regarding any of the points raised please let us know.
