How do I arrange to be set up as a supplier of Galway City Council?
At order stage the Supplier will receive a Purchase Order Number, which must be quoted on the Supplier Invoice.
All suppliers working as Sub-Contractor's on behalf of Galway City Council, on any "relevant construction operation" must also complete a Relevant Contract Tax Registration form with Galway City Council (the Principal Contractor). All Relevant contracts must be registered with Revenue (ROS) and all individual contract payments must also be registered with Revenue in advance of payment. Full details of the operation of RCT and a description of the meaning of "relevant construction operation" is available on the Revenue website at www.revenue.ie
Suppliers of a Professional Service
Professional Services Withholding Tax (PSWT) applies to payments made by Galway City Council in respect of the provision of professional services. Full details of the operation of PSWT is available on the Revenue website at: www.revenue.ie
All suppliers are paid by Electronic Funds transfer.
I am a supplier. Do I need a Tax Clearance Certificate?
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. This is in accordance with Section 177 of the Finance Act 1995 as amended by the Taxes Consolidation Act 1997,
If total payments reach the €10,000 threshold within a rolling 12-month period, payments cannot be made until a valid Tax Clearance 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 Tax Clearance Certificate, an application form can be obtained at www.revenue.ie
Where can I get a Tax Clearance Certificate?
A tax clearance certificate can only be obtained from the Revenue office.
The Revenue Office for Galway is located at Geata na Cathrach, Fairgreen, Galway City.
