Last week Revenue published its Annual Report, detailing the activities behind the collection of €82.4 billion in net receipts for the Exchequer in 2022.
Also published (links at the bottom of the page above) are a series of research papers and statistical reports including:
· An analysis of Corporation Tax which profiles 2022 payments and 2021 tax returns, providing considerable detail on what is now the second largest tax in the State.
· An analysis of Income Tax focused on PAYE taxpayers in 2022. The paper exploits the detail generated by real-time reporting systems to provide diverse insights, including on pensions (both contributions and incomes), employment churn, and post-pandemic inequality levels to name a few areas.
· An analysis of VAT which profiles 2022 payments and repayments and provides useful detail on the operation of the tax.
· An analysis of Vehicle Registration Tax (VRT) which profiles 2022 payments and reflects the notable changes that have occurred in the vehicle market in recent years due to the impact of Brexit, COVID-19 and climate-focused policies.
Versions of the above papers covering older years can be accessed here: Revenue also published a report on its latest large-scale customer survey, covering SMEs. While its focus is mainly customer service there are also insights related to COVID-19, Brexit and the shadow economy. Finally, Revenue also published its annual illegal tobacco survey results for 2022, the latest statistics on the Debt Warehouse and a statistical overview of PAYE taxpayers who filed Income Tax returns in 2023 Q1 (including a focus on the uptake for the Rent Tax Credit, Remote Working Relief and Health Expenses).
