Autumn tax deadline crisis, 14 September update

Sep 14, 2020

Members in practice from all over the country have been in contact with us in recent weeks telling us of the huge work pressures they face and resourcing constraints in meeting the tax deadlines.  This is a challenge also facing members of our fellow CCAB-I accountancy bodies.  Chartered Accountants Ireland and the CCAB-I have made representations to the Government and to Revenue on the deadline crisis facing accountants. 

In the CCAB-I Pre-Budget 2021 submission and Chartered Accountants Ireland publication The Next Financial Year, we have called for a suspension of surcharges over the corporation tax deadline for 23 September and the income tax deadline for 12 November.  These publications were distributed to all TDs and Senators and to the Government.  

Chartered Accountants Ireland under the auspices of the CCAB-I has made representations to Revenue through the TALC forum and we set out the issues in advance for Revenue in a letter which was discussed at the Main TALC meeting this week. The Sunday Independent recently reported this letter and the difficulties facing accountants this deadline season.

We will update you on this important matter via our website, Tax News and Chartered Accountants eNews
