Ensuring you meet all relevant deadlines is critical to avoid incurring a penalty that will affect your company’s financial standing and reputation.

Providing false information

If the Corporate tax return is judged to be inaccurate, Revenue may instigate a tax enquiry (tax audit) that could result in a fine. Getting your tax calculations wrong is clearly a serious matter.
