Update on bulk TWSS check letters

Oct 05, 2020

Members contacted the Institute last Friday on what appears to have been a bulk letter dispatch of Temporary Wage Subsidy Scheme (TWSS) compliance check letters for employers who have not been checked to date under this project. Recognising the pressures facing small to medium-size employers and their tax agents, Revenue confirmed to the CCAB-I that it will consider extending the turnaround period from five days if the accountancy firm contacts the business unit (Business Division in most cases) in Revenue which issued the letters on Thursday, provides the reference number of the employers they represent and set out a time frame to reply to all the letters, for example ten or fifteen days.  Revenue stress that the level of information requested in the letters is not extensive and it wishes to close out the TWSS compliance checks as soon as possible.
