Interacting with Revenue Audits and Interventions
Jonathan Ginnelly outlines the various audits and interventions undertaken by Revenue and how best to prepare for an audit or intervention.
The core role of the Revenue Commissioners is the assessment and collection of taxes and duties. In this regard in order to promote compliance by taxpayers with the tax system the Revenue Commissioners vigorously pursue those who do not comply with the tax system through various types of Revenue intervention.
Revenue interventions vary from Revenue aspect queries to Revenue audits and investigations. The core purpose of these interventions is to collect any taxes and duties that are correctly due to the State. Interest and penalties are also imposed to promote compliance.
