PAYE Modernisation or real-time reporting (RTR) will enable Revenue to ensure that employees are receiving their correct tax credits and cut-off points throughout the year. This compares with the current PAYE reporting which is done through P35s on a yearly basis.
Graham Doyle, Head of Communications from the Data Protection Commissioners office will be joining us to discuss GDPR and the effect it is having on all businesses. This FREE CPD accredited webinar will look at what is new in GDPR, how it may affect your business and what have we learned from the GDPR 3 months on. We will also look at how Thesaurus Payroll Manager can help your organisation utilise the new regulation to benefit you, your customers, suppliers and employees.
In preparation for PAYE Modernisation, Revenue is asking employers to send a list of their employees through Revenue's Online Services (ROS). This list will ensure that both Revenue and employer records are accurate and up-to-date.
A significant number of employers are still processing their payroll using a manual or spreadsheet system. A manual approach may seem like an attractive option but can result in inaccurate payroll processing. From January 2019, employers will be required to submit their payroll returns electronically and in real-time, each payroll run, allowing Revenue to access the most up-to-date information.
One of the main principles of the GDPR is that data shall be processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner. These three elements overlap and all three must be satisfied in order to demonstrate compliance. The GDPR stipulates that anywhere personal data is being collected, either directly or indirectly, Privacy Notices should be in place.
We have teamed up with Sinead Sweeney who is the PAYE Modernisation Change Manager for the Revenue Commissioners. The webinar will peel back the legislation to help you understand and implement the new changes for your business. The objective of PAYE Modernisation is for Revenue, employers and employees to have access to the most accurate, up-to-date information relating to pay and statutory payroll deductions. Places are limited.
Many bureaus have expressed concern and confusion in relation to getting consent from their client’s employees and securely distributing payslips. Payroll bureaus do not need to seek consent from individual employees that the payroll is processed for. However, the employer will need to inform their employees that they are sharing their personal information with a third party.
Our GDPR experts have put together a list of some of the frequently asked questions that we have been asked by our customers regarding the General Data Protection Regulation. Additionally, the legislation states that whenever a data controller (e.g. business/employer) uses a data processor (e.g. payroll bureau) there needs to be a written contract or Data Processor Agreement in place.
