Partnership with Irish Revenue Commissioners

The Irish Revenue Commissioners employ approximately 6,500 staff. The partnership with the University is a critical component of the ongoing training and development of Revenue Audit personnel.

Accreditation to Technical Tax Training
The University of Limerick teaches the BA (Honours) in Applied Taxation and accredits the Diploma in Applied Taxation. Over 800 Revenue participants have graduated to date with a Diploma or BA in Applied Taxation.

Delivery of BA (Honours) in Applied Taxation
There are currently 21 Revenue participants undertaking Year 4 of the BA (Honours) in Applied Taxation. This is an intensive and varied programme designed to meet their educational requirements in an increasingly complex taxation environment. Together with modules on advanced taxation, international tax issues and revenue law, there is a significant focus on taxation data analysis, and on risk management and governance in the public sector.

Mr Frank Daly, Chairman of the Revenue Commissioners, stated at the signing of the Service Level Agreement between the two organisations for the delivery of the 4th and Final Year of a BA (Hons.) programme in Applied Taxation that:

"This new Honours level final year degree programme will add to Revenue's advanced technical capacity to:

  • Compete with the ever-increasing complexity of national and international taxation.
  • Provide first class service to our clients, particularly those involved in larger and more complex areas.
  • Harness professional expertise to critically examine, challenge and address developments within business which may legally or otherwise strive to circumvent or undermine the objectives of tax legislation.
  • Support the Minister and Department of Finance in ensuring our tax legislation is effective and robust."
