Why do I need to add my Digital Certificate?

PAYE Modernisation introduces two new processes - the automated retrieval of Revenue Payroll Notifications for each of your employees from Revenue and the submission of your payroll data each payroll run to Revenue.

For this two-way communication to take place between Thesaurus Payroll Manager and Revenue’s systems, your ROS digital certificate will be used.

Therefore, the computer that you run your payroll from will need to have your ROS Digital Cert installed on it.

As a test, if you are currently able to log into ROS from that computer, then your digital certificate is already in place and can subsequently be added into Thesaurus Payroll Manager:


  • If you are an employer using the Standard version of Thesaurus Payroll Manager, click here for guidance on how you can add your digital certificate into the software

  • If you are using the Bureau version of Thesaurus Payroll Manager and hold an agent digital certificate, click here for guidance on how you can add your agent digital certificate into Thesaurus Payroll Manager


In the event that your digital certificate is not on the same machine as your payroll software, guidance is provided here on how you can move your certificate from one machine to another.
