All proprietary directors ( i.e those that control more than 15% of share capital) are required to file returns under the self-assessment system even where their salary has been subject to PAYE.


Individuals must file a return not later than 31 October in the year following the tax year. Where returns are filed on-line and taxes are also paid on-line then an extension of time is  granted of usually of about 2 weeks.


Returns submitted late incur an automatic 5% surcharge. If submitted after 31 December the surcharge is 10%.


This is the 31 OCTOBER each year. An extension is granted in certain circumstances where taxes are paid on-line.


The rate of interest on overdue income tax is 0.219%per day from 1 July 2009.


If taxes remain unpaid Revenue may refer the taxes to the sheriff for collection. The sheriff has power  to seize goods and may also collect the taxes in instalments. The taxpayer will also have to pay sheriff's costs.


If taxes remain unpaid Revenue may eventually issued an attachment order against a third party debtor of the taxpayer  including their  bank.

Effectively the debtor must within 10 days pay the amount attached to Revenue.
