Irish Revenue issued updated guidance in respect of the information return for Revenue-approved profit sharing schemes (APSS).

In a change from prior years, the information return for an APSS must be filed online through Revenue’s online system, in a manner similar to the filing for the employer returns RSS1 and KEEP1.

The extended deadline, to 31 October 2020, is intended to facilitate the transition from a paper-based to an online system.
