A major part of any successful business is keeping on top of your filing requirements and ensuring that you are compliant with all the relevant authorities.
Currently in Ireland you are required to register for VAT if you provide, or believe you will generate turnover from the provision of services to the value of €37,500 in any continuous period of twelve months. This increases to €75,000 for the sale of products.
If you're just starting out, we can help you decide whether you need to be VAT registered or not. We will also monitor your situation, so that should it become obligatory for you to register for VAT, we can deal with all of the paperwork for you.
Standard VAT returns are filed and paid bi-monthly. Revenue may allow you to file your VAT return quarterly, bi annually or annually.
We can prepare your VAT return, either from your own book keeping records or we can take care of your record keeping and the VAT return. Any business registered for VAT must also file an annual Return of Trading Details (RTD).
If you employ staff, you must keep payroll records and submit a form P30. This is a return of PAYE, USC, PRSI & LPT to the Revenue Commissioners.
The P30 form is submitted to Revenue on a monthly or quarterly basis and payment is due by 23rd of the following month.
You must also submit a year end P35 return. We can provide a payroll service or help you set up the payroll records.
This system is due to change in 2019. We can help you cope with this change
The year-end accounts provide invaluable information about your business and are particularly useful if, for example, you wish to make a mortgage application or raise finance.

Letting us prepare your year-end accounts will relieve you of what can be an extremely stressful and time-consuming exercise. We offer competitive pricing with flexible payment terms and are dedicated to offering a professional, friendly service.
A company must use the Revenue Online Service (ROS) to file its return and pay any tax due under mandatory e-filing. A company has to:
A company must file its return and pay any tax due 9 months after the end of the accounting period (and on or before the 23rd of that month).
Interest and penalties may apply if returns are filed late.
Preliminary Corporation Tax
A company may be obliged to pay preliminary corporation tax depending on its profitability.
We can assist in determining if preliminary tax applies to your company.
All contracts and payments to sub contractors must be notified to Revenue via ROS when payments are made.
After the end of each period (monthly or quarterly), you need to file an RCT Return and pay RCT (online) through eROS by 23rd. There is a €100 penalty if the return is made or amended after the due date. Interest will be charged for late payments made by principals.
All Irish-registered companies have an obligation to file an annual return with the CRO. The annual return provides details of the company and is usually filed with a copy of the company’s statutory financial statements.
In addition to the requirement to file an annual return in the CRO, the Act imposes a requirement to hold an AGM every year within prescribed timelines. The Companies Act also imposes obligations on directors to ensure that proper books and records, such as accounting records, statutory registers and minutes of all director and shareholder meetings, are kept.
We at T J Hyland & Co Ltd can file these returns on your behalf and help you complete your obligations as directors.
As a director you may be obliged to file an income tax return each year, notwithstanding the fact that all of your income may have been taxed at source under the PAYE system.
We can advise you on your filing obligations.
