How to pay Revenue

I filed my tax return on time in 2012 but at the time I didn’t have the money to pay the bill. I now want to settle the bill but I am not sure how to actually get the money to the Revenue?

First things first you should be aware that there will have been interest added to your bill so bear in mind that this will need to be added to your tax liability.

If you register to pay your tax returns online using Revenue Online System (ROS), you can avail of more options so I would suggest you do this. Once you are using ROS the following methods can be used to pay your tax:

  • Laser/Credit Card - details can be entered online
  • ROS Debit Instruction – you can send in your bank details online or by post then authorise the payment online. Your tax agent may also set this up on your behalf if you have given them authority to do so.
  • Online Banking – If you are with AIB or Bank of Ireland, you can log in to your online banking and set up a payment to go directly to Revenue.
  • Cheque – a cheque made payable to the Collector General along with your personalised payslip with the section “Statement of Net Liabilities” filled in.
  • Single Debit Authority – This is a one off payment that you can set up by completing the “Statement of Net Liabilites” portion of your personalised payslip along with the details of your bank account.
