Preparing the ROS P35 file

This utility facilitates fast, effective upload of your P35 to ROS. In order to use this facility, your company must be registered to use the Revenue Online Service (ROS).

If you have not yet registered - go to www.revenue.ie > Register for ROS

IMPORTANT NOTES

THE DEADLINE FOR YOUR P35 IS THE 15TH FEBRUARY.

FAILURE TO MAKE A P35 RETURN BY THIS DATE WILL RESULT IN A FINE (or 46 days after cessation of the business).

THIS IS EXTENDED TO 23RD FEBRUARY FOR ROS CUSTOMERS WHO PAY AND FILE ONLINE.

YOUR P35 CAN BE SUBMITTED TO THE REVENUE COMMISSIONERS ONLINE THROUGH THE REVENUE ONLINE SERVICE (ROS) OR MANUALLY ON PAPER IF YOU ARE NOT REGISTERED WITH ROS. 


***Please note:
 
it is possible for employers with more than one payroll operating under a PAYE registration number to upload multiple files.  All files must be selected at the "add file" stage of the ROS upload by using the shift/ctrl button to select all relevant files. Totals from each file will amalgamate and create one declaration.  ROS will only allow the upload of multiple files when the files are in one location. Thesaurus Payroll Manager will give the same file name to the P35s, so one/some of the files must be renamed to enable all relevant files to be saved in one location. 

 

MOST COMMON VALIDATION ISSUES


Invalid PPS Number

If an employee's PPS number is invalid, go to Employees > Add/Amend Employee Details - amend the employee's PPS number if the correct number is known OR remove the invalid PPS number and replace with the employee's address and date of birth. Update the employee's record when completed.

 
Employee with NO PPS Number

If an employee's PPS number has been omitted in error, simply go to Employees > Add/Amend Employee Details - select the employee's name, enter the PPS number and 'Update'. If however an employee's PPS number is unknown, please ensure that their address and date of birth are entered instead.

Preparing a Supplementary P35

A supplementary P35 should only be prepared and submitted to Revenue if you have already returned a P35, but have employees who were omitted from this P35 and need to be reported to Revenue. 

It is only appropriate to select this option within Thesaurus Payroll Manager if the entire payroll file needs to be reported to ROS as a supplementary.  For example, you have two employers set up under one PAYE Reference Number and one P35 has been submitted to ROS, you can use the supplementary option to prepare and submit a supplementary P35 for the second employer file.
