Revenue eBrief No. 169/19

Change of Banking Provider

Following a Government-wide tender, Revenue has commenced a project to transition to Danske Bank as a new provider of banking services. The project will be delivered on a phased basis, with bank accounts used for Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) tax payments being the first to transition to Danske Bank.

All impacted customers in this phase have been advised of the upcoming changes and a transitional period is in place from 9 September to 1 October.

After 1 October 2019, only a very limited number of customers (such as taxpayers who have been granted an exemption from mandatory efiling) will be able to use the EFT option to pay their taxes. The new Danske account details applicable to these customers are now available on the Revenue website. 

All other customers are required to make payments on-line via ROS or myAccount and should make the necessary arrangements to do so by 1 October.

Customers who need further information or assistance during the transition period in changing from EFT to on-line payment methods can contact Revenue on 01 7383663.

Tax & Duty Manuals will be updated in due course to reflect the new bank account details.
