Online Tax Collection Picking Up In Ireland

by Robert Lee, Tax-News.com, London

It appears that the Irish Revenue Commissioners are having more success in encouraging businesses to file and pay taxes online than their UK counterparts, according to a report from top consultancy firm Accenture.

According to partner Sean Shine, revenue collection so far has just hit the E1.5 billion mark, impressive when it is considered that original estimates from when the service was launched had settled, rather pessimistically, at around the £50 million (approx. E63,500,000) mark.

According to Mr Shine, over 4,000 companies are using the online service, and a total of 8,500 have applied to use it. The Revenue Commissioners have announced that they plan to extend the facility to individual taxpayers from next year, and say that they are optimistic for its future.
