Issuing a P45

When an employee leaves your employment, you should issue them with a Form P45. 

Part 1 of the P45 must then be returned / submitted to the Revenue Commissioners through the Revenue Online Service (ROS) to inform them that the employee has left your employment. 

After uploading part 1 of the P45, parts 2,3 and 4 of the employee's P45 will then be sent to your ROS Inbox for printing on to official Revenue P45 paper. Revenue P45 paper can be ordered by phoning the Revenue Forms and Leaflets helpline on 1890 306 706.  


Before issuing a P45, it is important to ensure that all final payments have been made to the employee and all relevant payslips have been updated, so that the correct year to date figures are included in the P45.
