Revenue are commencing to contact taxpayers who have availed of the Debt Warehousing Scheme.
Where a business has filed all due returns, the notice will set out a breakdown of the debt that has been warehoused including the tax type, the period and the amount that has been warehoused.
For taxpayers who have any returns outstanding, the notices will outline the outstanding returns (by tax type, period, and due date) which must be filed in order to quantify the total warehoused debt and to benefit fully from the scheme. Revenue advises in the letters that taxpayers have until 30 April 2022 to file all the outstanding returns; otherwise, the benefits of the scheme will be lost i.e., debt will become payable immediately and the reduced 0 and 3 percent interest rates will be unavailable.
Revenue expects that about 40 percent of letters will be delivered to the ROS inbox, with the remaining 60 percent delivered via post.
Taxpayers will receive one of four types of notice depending on their individual circumstances i.e., Period 1 has ended for the business on 31 December 2021, whether the warehouse period has been extended to 30 April 2022 and whether tax returns are outstanding. The notices set out any actions that are required to be taken by taxpayers (if any).
