Payment of import duty

Post Brexit import duties will apply to goods arriving into Ireland from the United Kingdom (UK). Import duties are generally paid in advance of the goods arriving into Ireland. This allows the goods to be released to the importer without delay as soon as they arrive.

Once you are registered for an Economic Operators Registration and Identification (EORI) number, you will be assigned a Revenue Trader Account Number (TAN). This is a secure channel through which you can make payments, for example pay import duties.

Your import duty payments must be made online through the Revenue Online Service (ROS) or myAccount. You can do this by selecting the ‘Customs and Excise’ payment option and either:

  • provide the required details of your credit or debit card
  • or
  • use the option to transfer money from your (the payer’s) bank account by Single Debit Instruction (SDI).
