Stay and Spend Scheme

How to claim the Stay and Spend Tax Credit

You must make a claim for the Stay and Spend tax credit when completing your annual tax return.

You must submit a copy of a receipt for any qualifying expenditure incurred when making a claim. You can do this using the new Revenue Receipts Tracker App.

We have a step by step guide in TDM Part 15-01-47 on how to:

  • submit a copy of your receipt
  • make a claim for the credit.

Who can claim this tax credit?

You are eligible to claim the Stay and Spend tax credit if you have both:

  • incurred qualifying expenditure of at least €25 from 1 October 2020 to 30 April 2021
  • sufficient IT or USC liabilities to offset against the credit.
