No backdating for EWSS registrations

Mar 15, 2021

Revenue asked Chartered Accountants Ireland to remind employers that EWSS registration applications cannot be backdated, even where the employer is re-registering for the scheme.

The notice provided by Revenue details:

Revenue would like to remind employers that EWSS registration applications cannot be backdated. This is equally applicable to re-registrations where employers are once again eligible to partake in the scheme. This means that employers need to complete the (re-)registration process prior to the pay dates in respect of which they wish to claim EWSS.
