Ways to make an online payment
There are a number of online methods available to you to make a payment to Revenue. We accept:
- ROS Debit instruction (RDI). If you are registered for Revenue Online Service (ROS), you can set up an RDI. You will only need to do this once and it will allow you to submit a payment immediately. You will decide the amount of the payment and when the payment is made.
- Single Debit Instructions (SDI). You can set up an SDI using ROS or myAccount. This allows you to make once-off payments directly from your bank account. Please check beforehand that your account can accept a direct debit.
- Direct Debit Instruction (DDI). You can set up a DDI through ROS. You can choose to make monthly payments to Revenue for current taxes.
- Credit and debit cards. Making a payment using a credit or debit card is only available to customers whose tax affairs are managed by Revenue’s Personal and Business Divisions. You can make a card payment using a Visa or Mastercard. Revenue absorbs the charge when you use these cards. You can pay this way through ROS or myAccount.
Customers can also make payments from a bank account in a non-EEA (European Economic Area) state. These customers will be automatically obliged to enter their address details when setting up the payment mandate.
The States that are non-EEA but in Single European Payments Area (SEPA) reachable are:
- San Marino
- United Kingdom
- Vatican City.
