What is a Tax Clearance Certificate ?

A Tax Clearance Certificate is issued to tax registered business/individuals and confirms that tax affairs are up to date.

It is required by government bodies & other organisations when considering awarding of tenders & approving grant applications.

Financial Institutes (Banks) also require tax clearance certificates when applications are made for financial support.

Tax Clearance Certificates were previously issued in hard copy format and presented to the relative organisations.

Revenue have now introduced E-Tax Clearance Certificates - these are electronic confirmation which can be accessed online.

Hard copies are no longer provided, but are available to download from ROS.
