Since the 1st January 2019, employers are required to submit their payroll data to Revenue every time they perform a pay run – most importantly, this periodic submission needs to be received by Revenue ‘on or before’ payment is made to the employees.
This periodic submission of your payroll data to Revenue is known as the Payroll Submission Request (PSR).
After updating a pay period, Thesaurus Payroll Manager will automatically create the Payroll Submission Request required by Revenue and you will see that process icon 6 will immediately prompt you that the submission is outstanding:
A summary of the PAYE, USC, PRSI & LPT totals included in the submission will be displayed on screen for you to view.
As soon as the submission is successfully received by Revenue, a confirmation response will be received back into the software confirming successful receipt, as well as the total amount of taxes that were included in the submission.
You are now ready to distribute your employee payslips and pay your employees.
On closing out of the PSR utility, you will be prompted to take a backup of your payroll data.
If you are not using Thesaurus Connect, it is strongly recommended that you complete the backup process, as a backup of your payroll file will provide a safety measure should you experience any problems with your PC.
Please note: we strongly recommend NOT taking a backup to the C: drive of your PC as this does NOT protect your payroll software. Taking a backup to an external drive, e.g. to a USB key, server or to a cloud environment, ensures that your payroll is saved elsewhere.
To back up your payroll data:
A confirmation message will now appear to confirm that your backup has been successful.
