Amendments to the VAT3 filing process

Oct 02, 2017

Two new functions were recently added to the VAT 3 filing process in Revenue Online Service (ROS). The first is an option to provide Revenue details of unusual or exceptional expenditure incurred, the second is a mandatory confirmation of the payable or repayable VAT for the period.

According to the Revenue Tax and Duty Manual  Enhancement of VAT 3 Filing Process in ROS, when filing a VAT 3 return you have the opportunity to notify Revenue in advance of any unusual or exceptional expenditure items which would otherwise be likely to result in a verification check during processing of the VAT 3.  The mandatory confirmation screen is intended to minimise the potential for submission of incorrect VAT returns which might otherwise require contact to or from Revenue during processing of the return.

You can read more about the new functions on the Revenue website.
