Any company doing business with a Local Authority or any other Public Body should have a valid Tax Clearance Certificate.
A Tax Clearance Certificate is a written confirmation from Revenue that a person's tax affairs are in order at the date of issue of the certificate.
If total payments to a supplier reach €10,000, within any 12 month period, no further payments can be made by the Local Authority until a valid Certificate is received from the supplier.
This threshold also refers to the payment of grants, subsidies and similar type payments.
An application may be made on-line for a Tax Clearance certificate at www.revenue.ie or through your local taxation office.
