Schedule E PAYE liability (2020 Income Tax Return only)
You may have been entitled to warehouse some of your Income Tax liability if you were a director or employee with a material interest in your employer company. This applied to Schedule E PAYE liability for your 2020 Income Tax Return only.
You must have made a declaration on your 2020 Income Tax Statement of Net Liabilities that you were not:
- entitled to Income Tax warehousing as your income is more than 75% of 2019 income
- able to claim relief under S997A TCA as your employer has warehoused their PAYE Income Tax liabilities.
Terms and conditions for the Temporary Wage Subsidy Scheme (TWSS)
It was possible to warehouse your Temporary Wage Subsidy Scheme (TWSS) and Employment Wage Subsidy Scheme (EWSS) overpayment. For this, you must have been able to show that your business is unable to repay the excess payment you received.
Failure to comply with the terms and conditions of warehousing will result in your removal from the scheme. All outstanding balances may be enforced and interest at the full statutory rate will be applied.
