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.

 

 

Certificates Are Now Accessed Online - E-Tax Clearance Certificates.

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.
