Special Assignee Relief Programme (SARP), line 228

If you have been approved by the Revenue Commissioners for the SARP, via the Form SARP 1A application process, you must file a Form 11, and you should enter the details of the relief at box 228. This relief applies to employees with a base salary of €75,000 or more per annum, who had an employment relationship with a relevant employer or associated company for at least six months immediately before relocating to Ireland, and have been non-resident in Ireland for at least five tax years before relocating here.

You must work in Ireland for the employer for at least 12 months. If you qualify for the relief, 30pc of your employment income in excess of €75,000 is exempted from the charge to income tax for the 2018 tax year. USC and PRSI are payable on your full employment income.

Allowable deductions incurred in an employment, line 238

Depending on the nature of your employment, you may be entitled to claim expenses against your income. 'Flat-rate' expenses are approved by the Revenue Commissioners in relation to certain employments/occupations. A full list can be found at revenue.ie. If you qualify for employment expenses, you should include the nature of your employment at line 238 (a) and (b). This section has been split into two parts: flat-rate expenses and all other expenses.

Tax relief for superannuation contributions/AVCs which were not deducted by your employer can be claimed at line 239.

You may qualify for this relief where you are tax-resident in Ireland but spend significant time working in certain specified countries.

A tax deduction of up to €35,000 is available where an individual has 30 qualifying days in a relevant state in a 12-month period. The list of relevant states is available at revenue.ie.

A qualifying day is three consecutive days spent working in any relevant country.

Share Option Exercises - Line 245

A share option is a right that your employer grants you to acquire shares in your employer. You must complete a Form 11 for every year that you exercise share options.

You should have already paid the income tax, USC and PRSI due on an exercise of share options by completing a Form RTSO1 (available on www.revenue.ie) and paid the taxes within 30 days of exercise. You may be charged interest by the Revenue Commissioners if you have not done this yet.

The Revenue Commissioners are likely to match the employer's annual Form RSS1 filings to your filings in order to ensure that you paid over all taxes due and reported all exercises of share options which took place during the year
