The settlement, €1.03 million of which was still outstanding at the end of last year, was the largest of those on a list of tax defaulters covering the last three months of 2018 that was published by Revenue today.

The next biggest settlement was made by a haulage contractor, Transbound Limited, from Station House, Upton in Co Cork.

It agreed to pay €996,690 to Revenue following an investigation for the under-declaration of VAT.

It has so far paid €387,068 of what it owes in tax, interest and penalties to the tax collector.

A midlands car dealership, which is now in liquidation, also owed Revenue €617,661 at the end of last year.

John Carroll Car Sales (Tullamore) Ltd, was billed for unpaid tax, interest and penalties arising from the under declaration of VAT, PAYE, PRSI and USC after it was audited by Revenue.

While a man described as a PAYE employee, Joseph Bergin, with an address at Castleheath, Swords Road in Malahide, Co Dublin, was also included on the list.

Mr Cagney, with an address in Sutton Park in Dublin 13, told RTE News that the issue resulted from an accounting error, which when brought to his attention was settled immediately.

In total, 73 settlements worth a total of €12,718,967.69 are included on the list published today. 37 cases were for amounts exceeding €100,000 with five of those exceeding €500,000.

A further six cases were published where a court had determined a penalty exceeding 15% of the total tax and the total of the tax, interest and penalty was more than €35,000 and a qualifying disclosure has not been made.

Collectively these tax and penalties totaled €325,293.15.

These include failure to file a tax return, failure to deliver a statement of affairs, misuse of marked mineral oil and excise and licensing offences.
