Pay and File

Pay and File Tax

The tax year in Ireland is from 1 January to 31 December. Under Self-Assessment there is a common date for the payment of tax and filing of tax returns, this is 31 October.

This system, which is known as “Pay and File”, allows you to file your tax return and pay the balance of tax outstanding for the previous year at the same time.

Under this system you must:

  • Pay Preliminary Tax (an estimate of tax due) on or before 31 October each year. In calculating your Preliminary Tax you should remember that it includes PRSI, Health Contribution and Income Levy as well as Income Tax.
  • File your tax return after the 31 December, but not later than the 31 October following the end of the tax year.

Pay any balance of Income Tax due for the preceding year on or before 31 October.

If you have any queries on the Pay and File system, please contact a member of our team and we will be happy to assist.
