Mar 2015 | Tax Appeals Regime - reform and submission

The Government is developing proposals to fundamentally reform the tax appeals process, and the Irish Tax Institute has been engaging intensively on this issue across a range of activities.
A Draft Heads of Finance (Tax Appeals Commission) Bill 2015 was made available to the Institute in January outlining planned reforms. It proposes a number of positive changes to the regime including the publication of determinations, a transparent process for appointment of Appeal Commissioners and a clearer framework for progressing cases to the High Court.
However, there are two major concerns identified by the Institute of Taxation​
1. Abolition of the “in camera” rule.
2. Removal of the right to a rehearing of the facts at the Circuit Court.
These have been the subject of a submission to the Department, see here.
