It outlines the procedures to follow when creating, amending and cancelling SEPA Monthly Direct Debit Instructions for the payment of Local Property Tax.

All Direct Debit customers and their tax agents have the facility to self-manage SEPA Monthly Direct Debit payments for Local Property Tax by logging onto www.revenue.ie and selecting the LPT link. Customers and their agents will need the PPSN, Property ID and PIN. Customers and agents experiencing difficulties in setting up or managing a Direct Debit Instruction should contact the Direct Debit Helpline on 1890 338 448 (from outside the Republic of Ireland +353 1 702 3039).
