Do you have to submit an Irish Income Tax Return?

If yes then these are the Irish income tax return deadline dates:

The deadline to File a Tax Return in Ireland  is the 31st October following the end of the tax year. For example, the tax return for the period 01.01.21 – 31.12.21 must be filed by 31st October 2022. Interest and penalties will arise if your return is not submitted by the income tax return deadline date. 

If you are going to engage the services of an accountant it’s a good idea to reach out to them in advance of this deadline. As you can appreciate October tends to be a very busy period. 

Another deadline to be aware of is regarding paying your preliminary income tax liability. This is the 31st October in the year of assessment. For example, on the 31st October 2022 you pay preliminary tax for the tax year 2021. (Preliminary tax is 90% of your final liability for the current year or if lower 100% of your liability for the previous tax year).

This can be a cashflow issue. If you have not saved enough money, you may need to obtain a loan, so again ensure you leave yourself plenty of time to arrange financing from an institution if you will need it.
