The PAYE Modernisation Project is the most significant reform of the PAYE system since its introduction in 1960.
Parolla is configured for Direct Payroll Reporting. Our software and the Revenue system communicates discretely, behind the scenes, to exchange information seamlessly with Revenue servers.
Employers used to submit P30’s every month/quarter.
A P30 only contains the amount of tax due to be paid by the employer to revenue split by PAYE, USC, employee PRSI and employer PRSI.
There is no detailed break down of the details of an actual individuals income and tax deductions.
There is a whole new technical process of exchanging information with Revenue. They have created an improved portal that allows direct communication with payroll software. They have also created a new manual process for those without payroll software.
They key difference, aside from process, is the amount of information now exchanged with each individual pay run.
Under the new process employers check in with Revenue to get the latest tax information for each employee prior to preparing a pay run. This ensures that the correct tax details are available to deduct the correct amount each time. Payslip information is also sent back to Revenue to update their records for each pay run processed. Some of the new information not previously exchanged can be seen in the right hand column.

What do I do?
Now that PAYE Modernisation is active, there is very little that you actually have to do on ROS.
The easiest method for taking on new employees is to give them your Employer Tax Number and get them to create a Job in their myAccount. This will generate a new RPN and an Emploment in your company.
Your payroll software will also be able to request a new RPN from Revenue when employees provide their PPS number.
Submission to revenue are made at each pay run. A period return becomes available on the 1st of the following month. You have until the 14th of the following month to amend any submission.
