The services available at the ROS website are widely used by all businesses and some people in Ireland. By allowing a program, Java, to run on your computer and by storing a certificate unique to you at the root of your PC you can easily access your vital Revenue business information.

Site Undergoing Change

Site Undergoing Change

Most businesses will use this site on a regular basis so it is important that it functions smoothly and that they can get things done on it quickly. Key to this has been the program Java on your computer that up to now, has been used to communicate with the site and authenticate you and your certificate amongst other things.

Changes are coming to this as of December 2015. As of this date it will no longer be possible to access the ROS service using Java. The only login method available for ROS will be JavaScript. This is in response to feedback that the revenue have gotten on the use of Java. This coupled with the performance and functionality enhancements in recent years and more seamless support in modern browsers will allow for a much easier, simpler experience for people using the site.

Some slight adjustments will need to be made in order to be able to log in to the site using JavaScript. The most up to date version of your browser is needed including IE10 and Safari 6.1 or higher. Until the 15th of June 2015 EVR Claims and the PAYE Tab  linking to the PAYE anytime service will not be available on the website. It is important to note that NPAPI (a plug-in that allows Java to run on your browser) has been disabled in version 42 of Chrome browser. To fix this issue you can find all the necessary instruction here .

We recommend that you make the move to using Javascript to log in to the site well before December 2015. You may want to hold off until June 2015 though if you need to use PAYE Anytime on the site or you need to make European VAT Return (EVR) Claims online. This change will undoubtedly appear to people when they go to use the revenue site in some way at some stage so if you do have any problems then please let us help you out.
