Revenue has increased intervention activities considerably in recent years. Common forms of intervention include:
- Profile interviews
- e-Audits involving interrogation of taxpayers’ computerised accounting systems
- Multi-taxhead & multi-period audits. These are very comprehensive and can be involve considerable costs for taxpayers.
- Assurance checks
- Revenue Investigation. This occurs where Revenue has strong concerns that a serious tax offence has been committed. This may become a criminal prosecution should Revenue be satisfied that a taxpayer is in serious breach of Tax Law.
