Form 46G - Revenue Intervention

In line with the growing level of Revenue interventions post-COVID, we have noticed an increase in the quantum of Level 1 Compliance Interventions for non-filing of Form 46G returns.


Form 46G is a return identifying business payments to third parties for services provided. This return should be filed annually. The deadline for filing is nine months after the financial year-end. Details of certain payments made should be included in this return, namely payments over €6,000 for services provided to the business. This would include, for example, payment for transport, legal and advertising fees. Failure to file a Form 46G return on time could result in a penalty of €3,000 applied by Revenue. Non-compliance may also result in refunds being withheld.

In light of increased Revenue attention on this area, we suggest that businesses review their Form 46G filing position to ensure that compliance requirements are met.
