Set up a Revenue Online Service (ROS) Debit Instruction (RDI)

The RDI service allows you to register your bank account details to make one off payments to Revenue. The bank account needs to be Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) compliant.

With an RDI, you determine the amount of the payment. The payment date defaults to the due date. If you wish to make a payment earlier than this, you can change the payment date.

Creating an RDI in itself is not sufficient, you need to also authorise the transaction. This will allow Revenue to deduct the funds from your bank account.  

Who is this service for?

This service is for self-assessed taxpayers and companies or partnerships (ROS customers). Agents can use the RDI service on behalf of their clients.

What you need to use the service

To use the service, you will need:

  • the name of the account holder
  • the International Bank Account Numbers (IBAN) and Bank Identifier Codes (BIC) of the SEPA-compliant bank account.

How to access the payment facility

You can access this service through ROS by following these steps:

  • Click on the 'My Services' section from the ROS main menu.
