An Athenry car dealer has settled with the Revenue Commission for just under €800,000 according to the latest tax defaulters list.

The list of tax defaulters for the second quarter of 2019 shows that the Revenue agreed settlements for 43 cases amounting to €9.8 million.

Noel Turley, of Mountain North, Athenry settled with the Revenue Commission for the under-declaration of €454,377 in VAT from his motor dealership.

With interest and a penalty the total settlement amounted to €799,084. Of that settlement, €563,464 remained unpaid as of June 30.

Of the 43 cases settled by the Revenue Commission in Q2 2019, twenty one were for more than €100,000 and 6 were for over €500,000.

As of June 30 there remains more than €6.5 million of the settlements agreed which remains uncollected.

The single largest settlement made in this report was for €888,619 with website consultant Michael P. Doyle of Ranelagh, Dublin 6.

Not one cent of this settlement had been paid as of the end of June.

The Revenue Commission says that it rigorously pursues the collection and enforcement of unpaid settlements.

However in some cases such as company liquidation, it can be harder for the tax collector to get the full amount.
