Business tax advisory in Ireland – FAQs

How much tax does a business pay?

Irish businesses can pay a range of taxes, depending on their size and industry. These include corporation tax for limited companies, income tax for sole traders and partnerships, VAT, and employee PAYE/PRSI. Interest and penalties might apply if you fail to keep track of the taxes your business owes.

How do I file taxes for my business?

Business tax payments and returns in Ireland generally need to be filed digitally using the Revenue Commissioners’ online service. You’ll need to have registered your business for tax first – whether setting up as a sole trader, creating a trust, forming a partnership or starting a new company.

What happens if you don’t file business taxes?

Filing and paying your business taxes late in Ireland could lead to interest payments and penalties. Ignoring payment requests could ultimately lead to Revenue enforcement action, such as referrals to sheriffs or solicitors and even potential liquidation. It’s important to contact the Revenue early about any payment difficulties.

What expenses can I claim business tax deductions on?

A range of expenses can potentially be deducted against your business tax bills in Ireland, so long as they’re directly linked to your company’s operations. These expenses may include the likes of employee pay, rent on your premises, vehicle running costs, accountancy fees and goods bought for resale.

What are the receipts to keep for business taxes?

Receipts for expenses and purchases should be kept as part of your business tax planning if they’ve helped to inform your calculations. Any relevant sales invoices, accounting books and nominal ledgers should also be retained. Digital copies can often be stored using Revenue’s online service.
