A Carlow "holding company" has been hit with a tax bill of over €220,000 for under-declaration of Corporation Tax, according to the Revenue's latest tax defaulters list. 

Martello Builders at St Anne's, Green Lane, Carlow owed tax of €140,000 as well as interest of €44,457 and penalties in the amount of €42,000 had also accrued after the outstanding bill was uncovered following an audit by Revenue. 

The total bill came to €226,457 and there is no money outstanding. 

The latest defaulters list relates to the period from October 1 2018 to December 31.

Meanwhile, haulage contractor Patrick Oliver Hayden at Rathbawn, Tullow has paid a bill of €62,770 for under-declaration of
PAYE/PRSI/USC. This was made up of €41,844 in taxes; interest of €8,372 and penalties amounting to €12,553. 

There is no money outstanding. 

In each case, Revenue has accepted a settlement offer instead of initiating court proceedings, or a settlement has been paid in full. 

According to Revenue, settlements are published when the extensive voluntary disclosure options are not availed of and the default arises as a result of careless or deliberate behaviour.

A second list, which detailed every person who had a fine or other penalty imposed by a court in relation to tax issues from October 1 to December 31 2018, was also released.

Ballinaboley Plant Hire Ltd in Leighlinbridge was fined €2,500 for the misuse of marked mineral oil.
