Meanwhile, Revenue reminds businesses and self-assessed taxpayers of the availability of debt warehousing.
Revenue has this week written to over 100,000 taxpayers confirming that their tax debts totaling €2.2 billion are eligible for Debt Warehousing.
The Debt Warehousing Scheme allows VAT and PAYE (Employer) debts incurred by businesses during the period of restricted trading caused by Covid-19 to be ‘parked’ on an interest free basis for 12 months following the resumption of trading.
At the end of the 12-month interest free period, the warehoused debt may be paid in full without incurring an interest charge or paid through a phased payment arrangement at a significantly reduced interest rate of 3% per annum.
This compares to the standard rate of 10% per annum that would otherwise apply to such debts.
