2020 Revenue Payroll Notifications

The new 2020 Revenue Payroll Notifications were made available on the week commencing 9th December 2019.

The content of the notifications is very similar to 2019. Tax bands have been modified for USC rates in line with the budget for 2020, a summary of which can be found here.

To download your 2020 RPNs’ go to the Revenue > Revenue payroll notifications page. Select the year 2020 from the tab. Click on the button labelled Get all in 2020.

The new RPNs’ have been created with the same EmploymentID number as your 2019 employments, however the RPN number will have been reset back to 1.

Some reminders about RPNs’:

  • EmploymentID is the number (or identifier) of this employment for the employee as notified to Revenue. This should only change if an employee leaves and returns to the company at a later date. New employees should start on EmploymentID of 1.
  • PayrollID or EmployeeID is your organisations id number for that employee. This never changes for the employee. It is optional, unless the employee has no PPSN, in which case it is mandatory and should not be changed after the first submission to Revenue.
  • RPN Number is the version number of the revenue payroll notification. It is incremented upwards every time a new RPN is issued.
