Set up a monthly Direct Debit Instruction (DDI)

The DDI service allows Revenue Online Service (ROS) customers to register to make payments to Revenue by monthly direct debit for current taxes.

Who is the DDI service for?

You can use this service if you are registered for ROS and are:

  • an employer who opts to pay Employers' Income Tax by monthly direct debit. Employers can choose to avail of either the Fixed Direct Debit or Variable Direct Debit facility
  • a business which opts to pay Value-Added Tax (VAT) by monthly direct debit
  • registered for preliminary Income Tax and opt to pay by monthly direct debit.

You can submit an application to pay your VAT or Employers' Income Tax by Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) direct debit facility if you have:

  • bi-monthly VAT liabilities up to €50,000
  • monthly Pay As You Earn (PAYE), Pay Related Social Insurance (PRSI), Universal Social Charge (USC) or Local Property Tax (LPT) liabilities up to €25,000. Note: This threshold does not apply for the Variable Direct Debit facility.
