Tax & Pensions Deadline Advice 2022: What you need to know

Tax & Pensions deadlines are fast approaching.

Whether you’re an employee, self-employed or company Director, the deadline for tax returns is 31st October but you NEED to start the process ASAP to avoid missing out.

Individuals who both pay and file their tax returns through the Revenue On-line Service (ROS) have until Wednesday 16th November 2022 to pay a pension contribution and elect to backdate the income tax relief against the 2021 tax year. Those who do not qualify for the ROS extension must do this by 31st October 2022.
