P-Mod Preparation. Here's what the Revenue are expecting you to do now!
Employers need to be being proactive this summer as Revenue are expecting you to be uploading your lists of employees and their details NOW in preparation for PAYE Modernisation. You need to make sure you have cleared out any ex-employees that have not been given a P45 and are still registered to you and give them a clean list of live employees.
If you are using ROS the facility is available now. Needless to say we can do this for you too should you wish to avail of our services.
The idea is that once you have the list uploaded, Revenue will add or remove any starters or leavers going forward on a live basis.
It's probably a good idea not to leave this until the last minute.
Here are the instructions from Revenue (www.revenue.ie):
List of employees
Revenue is asking employers to send a list of employees through Revenue’s Online Service (ROS). This list will ensure that both Revenue and employer records are accurate and up to date.
The list must include:
employees who are currently in your employment (including directors)
employees on long term leave such as maternity leave or sick leave
pensioners in receipt of payments
seasonal or temporary employees for whom you have not completed the P45 process
employees on a career break for whom you have not issued a P45
employees for whom you have received a PAYE Exclusion Order.
Employees who are currently on a career break and have been issued with a P45 are not to be included.
The facility to upload the List of Employees will be made available on a phased basis throughout 2018. Employers will be notified of when it is available through ROS.
Before you send your list
It is important to ensure you have:
used the most recent current P2C to get the correct PPSN for each of your employees and pensioners
followed the P45 process for any employees who have left your employment
submitted Part 3 of the Form P45 or Form P46 for any employees who have started in your employment.
