Return Preparation Facility


The Return Preparation Facility (RPF) is a tool that you can access through the internet. You can prepare forms and save them on your local device. The saved forms must be uploaded to Revenue Online Service (ROS) online when complete.


You can save a link to the RPF in your browser favourites or bookmarks for ease of access.

The RPF is intended to replace the ROS Offline Application. Forms will be added to it over time. As forms are added, the version available in the ROS Offline application will no longer be maintained and should not be used.

The RPF is only accessible using supported browsers which are currently Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge and Opera.

Please note that the RPF will time out after 30 minutes of inactivity. Users can reset the timer by validating the form or moving to a new tab. If the RPF times out, any unsaved changes to the form will be lost. We recommend saving any work in progress regularly and using easily identifiable file names.
