Corrections - Overview

Following the introduction of PAYE Modernisation, a dedicated facility has been introduced within 2019 Thesaurus Payroll Manager in order to facilitate corrections that may be needed to your payroll.

The Correction Types available for selection are:

  • Do it all again - choose this option if the payroll has just been updated, employees have not yet been paid and one or more payslips need to be amended (e.g. you forgot to include overtime, you imported the wrong hours, you forgot to enter an employee's leave date)

  • New employee - in relation to a pay run previously processed, you had not been told of an employee who had started and who had been paid

  • Payment was different - in relation to a pay run previously processed, an employee(s) was physically paid an amount different to what was processed in the payroll

  • Wrong PPS Number - in relation to a pay run previously processed, the wrong PPS number was included for an employee

  • Wrong PRSI Class - in relation to pay runs previously processed, the wrong PRSI class was used for an employee

  • Employee has left - in relation to a payroll previously processed, you had not been told of an employee who had left and who had therefore not been paid.



Important notes regarding corrections


Corrections must always be dealt with on the basis of 'follow the money'.

This means that if an employee has been underpaid in a previous pay period, the correction of the underpayment should be made in the next payroll run you perform.

Likewise, if an employee has been overpaid in a previous pay period, the correction to recoup this overpayment should be made in the next payroll run you perform.

Where an employee, however, has physically received a payment amount which differs to the amount shown in the payroll, this will require a 'correction submission' to be made to Revenue in order to rectify the error.
