Chartered Accountants Ireland have confirmed today that the deadline for paying Pension Contributions that attract backdated tax relief for 2009 is extended from 31 October to 16 November. This applies where an individual has filed their 2009 Income Tax return by 16 November, and paid any 2009 tax balance via ROS by the same date.
In a statement issued today, Chartered Accountants Ireland stated “Following a request for confirmation from our members, we wish to advise all readers that where a taxpayer qualifies for the extended ROS Pay & File deadline of 16 November 2010, this extended deadline also applies to RAC, PRSA and AVC contributions. Readers are reminded that in order to avail of this extended deadline, both the return and the payment must be made online. Where only one of these actions is completed through ROS, the extension will not apply.”
As yet I don’t have a link for the statement but I will add this when it is online.
