Verification checks on remote working relief to be minimised


CCAB-I have recently contacted Revenue on foot of feedback from members on the high volume of verification checks by Revenue on remote working relief. Revenue noted that it is standard practice to carry out verification checks to confirm the eligibility of tax claims and remote working relief claims are incorporated into this standard practice. However, in recognition of the CCAB-I’s representations on the demands and challenges faced by accountants and having regard to monetary risk factors, Revenue has reviewed the level of verification checks carried out on remote working relief claims to date and has put measures in place to minimise such checks in so far as possible.
