Accounts Payable

All invoices/payments are processed and made by the Finance Department. These include payments for goods and services provided to the Council for various Capital and Revenue purposes.

The Council's Treasurer is AIB Bank plc., Main Street, Tallaght, Dublin 24.

Payment by means of Electronic Funds Transfer

Where practicable we endeavour to make payments to suppliers directly into their bank accounts by means of electronic funds transfer. A remittance is emailed to the supplier giving details of the invoices being paid.

Ordering and Invoicing

A valid Purchase Order Number must be recorded on invoices submitted for the purchase of goods or services.

An invoice received without a relevant purchase order number will be sent back from Accounts Payable to the supplier.

All invoices must be forwarded to:

Accounts Payable Section
South Dublin County Council
County Hall
Dublin 24

Tax Clearance

In accordance with Section 177 of the Finance Act 1995 as amended by the Taxes Consolidation Act 1997, all companies doing business with a Local Authority must have a valid Tax Clearance Certificate in your company name i.e. the name that appears on your invoices.

If total payments reach the €10,000 threshold within a rolling 12 month period, payments cannot be made until a valid Certificate is received from you.

The original Certificate must be submitted to the Accounts Payable office or if you use the Revenue On Line Service, your Registration Number and Notice Number is required.

This can be found on the top left-hand corner of your Certificate and Accounts Payable can confirm the details on line.

If you do not have a current certificate, an application form can be obtained

Relevant Contracts Tax

All new suppliers working as Sub-Contractor’s on behalf of South Dublin County Council must present their current C2 Card and a completed RCT46 Form, in person, to Account Payable.

If a supplier does not produce a valid C2 Card they must submit a valid Tax Clearance Certificate before any payments can be made.

If South Dublin County Council does not hold a Relevant Payments Card (Form RCT47) for a Sub-Contractor, South Dublin County Council must deduct 35% from all payments (incl. VAT) to the sub-contractor.

Withholding Tax

Withholding tax is taken from all payments in respect of professional services. It is deducted at the standard rate of income tax from the total amount of the payment due, including any amount in respect of expenses or outlay but excluding;

VAT charged by the specified person

Stamp Duties

Land Registry Fees

Deed of Registration fees

Company Office fees
