The Revenue has informed the Tax Faculty that anyone struggling to meet their tax liabilities due to the recent fuel crisis should contact the Revenue as soon as possible in order to discuss possible solutions.

A contact has been set up for small companies enquiring about whether they qualify for the Enterprise Investment Scheme, Venture Capital Trust Scheme and Enterprise Management Incentives.

Forms for claiming Working Families’ Tax Credit and Disabled Person’s Tax Credit are to be simplified. New forms will replace those asking for details of more than 30 individual income and expenditure items.
