Revenue eBrief No. 49/18

05 April 2018

Abolition of all credit card charges

From 5 April 2018, charges for payments to Revenue by credit card will no longer apply, irrespective of whether the cards are personal, business or international.

This is in line with Revenue’s focus on making it easier and more convenient for customers to do business with us online. It is in accordance with, but extends beyond, the terms of the European Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2) aimed at removing charges applied to consumer credit/debit cards.

Charges have not previously applied to payments to Revenue by debit card.

Customers can now make payments online using their preferred platform without any additional cost.

For further details please refer to the Tax and Duty Manual Agent's Guide to the Collector General's Division.
