Income Tax Debt Warehousing

When filing the Form 11, customers complete a Statement of Net Liabilities (SNL) to confirm the balancing payment due for 2020 and the amount of preliminary tax due for 2021. When completing the SNL, customers may opt to warehouse their 2020 balancing payment and the 2021 preliminary tax amount where there has been a minimum reduction of 25% of their income relative to 2019 due to COVID-19 and where all other eligibility criteria have been met.

Further information on debt warehousing is available on the COVID-19 information section of the Revenue website. You may also contact us through MyEnquiries or by telephone on (01) 738 3663 if you wish to discuss these matters further.
