Stage two of the Temporary Wage Subsidy Scheme (TWSS) reconciliation process commenced on March 22nd 2021.
Employers will receive a ROS Inbox Notification when their reconciliation information is available in ROS.
The scheme was in operation between 26th March 2020 and 31st August 2020. The reconciliation is reconciling the subsidy amounts refunded by Revenue and the amounts of subsidy that were paid to employees by employers.
Employers have until the end of June 2021 to review the detailed information provided by Revenue and accept the reconciliation amounts.
Stage one of the TWSS reconciliation required employers to report the subsidy paid to each employee in respect of each pay date.
Employers can view their up-to-date position of subsidy paid data through the Revenue Online Service (ROS) under the category 'TWSS Reconciliation'.
Employers have until the end of June 2021 to:
When a reconciliation is accepted a Statement of Account will be sent via the ROS Inbox. Employers will be required to pay any additional amount owed to Revenue or, if necessary, they will be paid any additional amount owed by Revenue to them.
Employers cannot accept their reconciliation until all subsidy data has been reported.
TWSS Reconciliation Summary
The reconciliation screen will reflect the employer's current reconciliation position. The information displayed will vary depending on the information the employer has submitted and the employer's balance.
Employers that have reported subsidy paid data for all the active TWSS J9 payslips
Employers can finalise their participation in TWSS by clicking 'Accept reconciliation'. Revenue will then combine the TWSS reconciliation result with any TWSS repayments that have already been made and a Statement of Account will issue to the ROS Inbox.
It no action is taken by June 30 2021, the reconciliation will be treated as final.
