Settlements worth almost €10m were made with the Revenue Commissioners between April and June this year.

It has published the latest tax defaulters list.

A total of 43 settlements were made - which occurs when voluntary disclosure is not used, and the default arises because of "careless or deliberate behaviour."

Twenty-one of these cases were for amounts exceeding €100,000, of which six were over €500,000.

Some 19 are cases still outstanding, in which the settlement was not fully paid as of June 30th.

Revenue says this outstanding amount stands at more than €6m.

But it adds: "Revenue vigorously pursues collection/enforcement of unpaid settlements.

"In some cases, collection/recovery of the full unpaid amount will not be possible (for example, company liquidation)".

A vehicle test centre operator in Wexford was told to pay nearly €706,000 for non-declaration of income tax and under-declaration of VAT.

And there were 176 where a court imposed a fine, totaling over €550,000.
