(This note is not part of the Instrument and does not purport to be a legal interpretation)

This Order commences section 92(1) Finance Act 2022 and appoints 1 July 2023 as the date of the coming into effect of that subsection.

Section 92(1) Finance Act 2022 amends section 1041 Taxes Consolidation Act 1997 (TCA) (Rents payable to non-residents), which provides for the taxation procedure that applies to rental income and other lease income received by a person who is not resident in Ireland in respect of property located in the State. Section 92(1) imposes additional obligations on persons paying rent directly to a non-resident landlord, in respect of providing certain information regarding the landlord, the property, and the rental payment to the Revenue Commissioners. The section also removes a collection agent from the obligation of being chargeable and assessable where the agent withholds tax from the rent payment and provides certain information to the Revenue Commissioners.
