What is PAYE Modernisation?



PAYE Modernisation was introduced in Ireland on the 1st January 2019. This was the first change to the PAYE System in Ireland since its introduction and there was a need to significantly improve the process. 

All P forms- like the P45 and P60, which Irish employers had become so accustomed to, have been taken out of use and replaced by real time reporting to Revenue known as ‘Payroll Submission Requests’. The new system states that relevant payroll data for each employee must be submitted by their employer when they are making a payment. In general, this is weekly or monthly.

The process of claiming tax credits has also changed. Employers must retrieve an up to date RPN for each employee before they run their payroll. The traditional tax credit certificate (P2C) is no longer valid. 

Regarding making the revenue payment, employers are to use the same system that was in place before PAYE Modernisation. Our team is fully trained in regards to PAYE Modernisation. If you have any queries relating to PAYE Modernisation please feel free to call us on 021-4963679.

Tailored services to suits your needs



We specialise in payroll services for small and medium sized businesses in Cork. Our process is completely tailored to manage all our client’s ROS obligations and deal with the tax authorities on their behalf. 

Our customer feedback highlights the fact that many of our payroll clients struggled to complete their payroll to the required standards before they decided to outsource their payroll to us. This was mainly due to the complexity and the amount of time it takes to complete properly.

All our small and medium sized business clients have benefited enormously from outsourcing to our payroll services team. For example, in order to operate an effective payroll system, it is necessary to obtain specialist software which can be costly and difficult to navigate. When you outsource your payroll to Russell & Co., you don’t need to worry about training for payroll systems and you have peace of mind that you are fully compliant with employment law.

What is the benefit of payroll outsourcing services?


Outsourcing payroll services can deliver significant cost savings to your company in both the short term and long term. One of the obvious benefits of outsourcing your payroll to us is that you will no longer be required to hire specialist staff to carry out your payroll in-house. 

By outsourcing to an accountancy firm you limit the need to pay software and other hidden costs. Also, when companies handle their own payroll, there is a large potential for tough penalties due to a tax filing mistake.

Because of our payroll expertise, we provide our clients with a less expensive means of paying their employees. We offer all our clients a fixed, transparent fee structure that helps with your budgeting.
