This utility facilitates fast, effective upload of your P30 to ROS. In order to use this facility, your company must be registered to use ROS.

The P30 is the total of:

  • the tax deducted from the pay (PAYE, USC, LPT) of all employees less any tax refunded to them 


  • the total PRSI contributions (the amount deducted from pay plus the amount payable by the employer) 

and should be remitted to the Collector General within 14 days from the end of the income tax month during which the deductions were made.

For employers who file their returns and associated tax payments via ROS, time limits are extended to the 23rd of the month immediately following the income tax month during which the deductions were made.

Where a return and associated payment are not made electronically by the extended deadlines, the extended time limits will be disregarded so that, for example, any interest imposed for late payment will run from the former due dates and not the extended dates.
