I am advised by Revenue that the tax collection from businesses in the tourism and hospitality sector for 2018 is included in “Accommodation & food services” in statistics published on Revenue’s website at https://www.revenue.ie/en/corporate/information-about-revenue/statistics/receipts/receipts-sector.aspx.

Six monthly data by industry sector is not prepared by Revenue as most of the major taxes (including income and corporation tax) are charged in respect of yearly income or profits. The website will be updated to reflect a sectoral breakdown in respect of 2019 tax receipts at the end of the year.
