VAT registrations - update

Oct 02, 2017

Revenue has published some guidelines on the approval process that VAT registration applications go through.  We are aware that members are experiencing some difficulties and frustration with delays in the VAT registration process and we continue to make representations to Revenue on this matter. 

The guidelines say that all VAT registration applications, with limited exceptions, must be made online through the Revenue’s eRegistration facility and additional supporting information can be submitted to Revenue via MyEnquiries.  The guidelines detail the registration process and also cover the information required by Revenue. Also included is a sample of the standard query letters that Revenue might issue in cases of incomplete registrations. 

The guidelines are published as part of a Revenue Tax and Duty Manual.
