Mineral Oil Tax on vehicle gas (MOT VG)

Returns and payments

Returns and payments deadlines

Liable vehicle gas suppliers must file a return and pay for each bi-monthly period by the last day of the following month. For example, the due date for the period January - February is 31 March.

Fourteen days before the due date, Revenue will issue a pay and file reminder email to Revenue Online Service (ROS) customers.

Revenue will issue an estimate of the tax due by suppliers who do not submit a return by the due date. Revenue's estimate is the amount of tax that Revenue will pursue if a supplier does not complete and file their return.

If a taxpayer fails to pay the amount due, Revenue may refer the debt for enforcement action. This can include sheriff enforcement, civil proceedings through the courts or attachment of third parties.

Interest on late payment applies to any payment made after the due date.

Liable suppliers must submit a nil return where there is no liability due.

Suppliers registered for ROS can file returns and make payments on ROS.
