The Revenue Commissioners published a new Code of Practice for Revenue Compliance Interventions which came into effect on 1 May 2022. The new Code reflects an intention to expand real-time compliance checks and to adopt a risk-focused approach to selection for a tax audit. It reinforces the Revenue Commissioners view on the value and importance of self-review. There is an ever-increasing range of data sources available to the Revenue Commissioners which facilitates automated tax risk analysis and improves tax risk profiling for more targeted tax audits. In addition, there is increasing co-operation between tax authorities across borders and the utilisation of exchange of information. Our services strive to ensure that the tax audit is managed effectively to lessen the impact of the tax audit on your business and drive a solution-orientated approach to engagement with the Revenue Commissioners. Our team has the expertise and experience to engage and negotiate with the Revenue Commissioners to finalise the tax audit outside the public domain.
