PAYE Modernisation

Revenue is changing the way that PAYE\PRSI\USC\LPT liabilities are reported to them.

Currently the liabilities are reported on a Monthly or Quarterly basis using the form P30 and then at the end of the year a form P35 is submitted giving the total liability for the year.

From the 1st of January 2019 the PAYE\PRSI\USC\LPT liabilities must be reported to Revenue on or before a payment is made to an employee. This is for every employee and every payment and these return will now be deemed statutory returns after the 14th of the following month meaning that amendments after this date will be open to penalties and will increases the likely hood of Audit.
