R&D Tax Credits

Have you requested an expedited payment of excess R&D Tax Credits?

Revenue typically does not process refunds until after the CT1 filing date, even where the CT return is filed early. Therefore, if a company has a 31 December year end, the refund may not be processed until after 23 September of the following year. In essence, this can mean a company may not receive its R&D refund until November or December of the following year.

Revenue recently issued guidance which notes that due to the impact of Covid-19, Revenue will, subject to appropriate checks, issue R&D refunds earlier in order to assist with companies’ cashflow. Consequently, if a CT1 is filed early, Revenue may on request, process the R&D refund early which could lead to a company receiving an early refund. To learn more about the Revenue guidance click, here.

How EisnerAmper Ireland can help

If you are in a position to file your 2019 CT return early this year to avail of the expedited payment of the R&D refund, please contact our Tax specialists who would be delighted to assist.

At EisnerAmper Ireland, our dedicated team of Tax professionals possess the knowledge and experience required to provide technical guidance and specialist advice on this and all other corporation tax and VAT related matters. We tailor our offering to your needs, ensuring you receive the best advice at the appropriate time.

EisnerAmper’s Blood Donation with the Irish Blood Transfusion Service

Irish Blood Transfusion Service | CSR | Financial Services | EisnerAmper Ireland

On Tuesday 10 March, a number of EisnerAmper staff members visited the Irish Blood Transfusion Service in their Stillorgan clinic to donate blood. We were delighted to be able to donate and help such an important cause. Staff members were offered a ‘work ferry service’ between our office and the clinic to attend their donation session, organised by the Stillorgan clinic.

Donating blood is extremely important as 1 in 4 people will need a blood transfusion at some stage in their lives and only 3% of the eligible Irish population are currently giving blood. One donation is capable of saving up to three lives.

The shelf life of blood is only 35 days and 3,000 units of blood is needed each week so consider donating blood today. Find out if you are eligible to give blood here.

At EisnerAmper Ireland, we deliver solutions to support our community.

This year, CASSD chose ‘Aware’ as their sponsored charity. Aware undertakes to create a society where people affected by stress, depression, bipolar disorder and mood related conditions are understood, supported, free from stigma, and are encouraged to access appropriate therapies. EisnerAmper Ireland was delighted to sponsor staff tickets for such a worthy cause.

The theme for the ball was “CASSD and the Chocolate Factory”. The evening kicked off with a Prosecco reception, where attendees were greeted by a live saxophone player. The smooth jazz provided a welcoming and relaxed atmospheric back-drop as students ate from a donut wall, popcorn machine, and took pictures next to giant Wonka and CASSD backdrops. There was also a “magic mirror” photo booth with blow up props for students to avial of. A great time was had by all.

Report on research into Credit Union Directors

Credit Union | Directors Report | Financial Services | EisnerAmper Ireland

The Credit Union Advisory Committee (“CUAC”) has published its report into the issues and challenges facing Credit Union Directors and to explore their role in the context of the current governance structure. A combination of focus groups, questionnaire and an online survey provided all Directors with a unique opportunity to voice their opinions, and the level of responses received demonstrated the value of this exercise. In total 924 Directors from 83% of Credit Unions contributed to the survey process while 36 Directors participated in focus groups. Arising from the results of the survey, CUAC has made recommendations to the Department of Finance, the Central Bank of Ireland and Credit Unions to consider which cover three areas: (i) legislation, regulation, supervision; (ii) structure and workings of the Board; and (iii) supports.

Diarmaid O’Keeffe, Partner and Head of Audit at EisnerAmper Ireland, was appointed by the Minister for Finance and Public Expenditure and Reform, Paschal Donohoe TD, to CUAC in September 2018. CUAC was established in 1997 to advise the Minister for Finance and Public Expenditure and Reform regarding the improvement of the management of Credit Unions; the protection of the interests of members and creditors of Credit Unions; and other matters relating to Credit Unions upon which the Minister and the Central Bank of Ireland may from time to time seek the advice of the Committee.

Commenting on the Report, the Minister for Finance and Public Expenditure & Reform, Paschal Donohoe TD said:

“I welcome this Report, and commend CUAC for giving all Directors an opportunity to voice their opinion directly. This report provides valuable insights into the role of Credit Union Directors, from 924 Directors themselves, and contains a considerable amount of data which can be used to benchmark the sector, now and into the future. Volunteer Directors perform a vital role in safeguarding and improving the sector whilst also upholding the unique ethos of the movement. It is now important that all stakeholders involved in the sector consider in detail the recommendations the report sets out to aid the role of these Directors.”
