EWSS Self Review
15 June 2022
If your business availed of EWSS Covid Support, please note that the Revenue has advised, in recent days, that from the 20th June next, all employers who claimed EWSS will receive a self-review letter from Revenue requiring them to conduct a final review of their eligibility for all subsidies and PRSI credits received.
No further action is required where the employer is satisfied that all claims are valid and correct.
Submissions to correct and repay any invalid claims must be made by 30 September 2022.
Revenue have advised that your accountant (or “Agent” in Revenue speak) will receive a cover letter with a list attached, detailing which of their clients received the EWSS self-review letter. We would suggest that you keep an eye on your ROS inbox as your Agent may not receive a copy of the letter in their Agents ROS Inbox.
Interest and penalties may apply to incorrect claims for subsidies and/or credits identified where Revenue undertake a review of EWSS eligibility at a later date.
To assist, Revenue is providing an eligibility review calculator on its website. A sample of the text of the letter has also been provided by Revenue and is reproduced below :
