Revenue have this week announced that more small businesses will be qualify for reduced frequency VAT, PAYE/PRSI, & RCT tax returns and payments in 2012.
With effect from 1 January 2012, businesses whose annual VAT bills are less than €3,000 will only be required to file VAT returns and pay VAT liabilities every 6 months. If their annual VAT bills are between €3,000 and €14,400, they will file and pay every 4 months.
In addition, employers and contractors whose annual PAYE/PRSI or RCT liabilities are less than €28,800 will be eligible to make quarterly P30 & RCT30 returns and payments.
Revenue state that this will mean improved cashflow and less form-filling for eligible businesses.
They will soon be writing to businesses that they believe to be eligible for these new arrangement. If you don’t hear from them, but feel that your business should be eligible, (for example due to falling turnover), you should get in touch with Revenue before the end of December.
