Register of Employees

Employers have a statutory obligation to keep and maintain a Register of Employees.

A Register of Employees must contain the following information:

  • The name, address and PPSN (Personal Public Service Number) of each employee

  • The date of commencement of employment for each employee

  • The date of cessation of employment for each employee (where appropriate)

The register will not only contain information for full time staff, but must also include temporary, part time or casual employees. 

This obligation to maintain a Register of Employees is separate to an employer's obligation to register with Revenue for PAYE purposes.

A Register of Employees can be prepared in Thesaurus Payroll Manager by going to Employees > Employee Register.  The Register of Employees will be displayed on screen, and can subsequently be copied or printed.


Please note: if you notice that any of the required information is missing from the Register of Employees, go to Employees > Add/Amend Employees to enter the information. 

A date of commencement outside of the current tax year can be entered in Employees > Add/Amend Employees > HR Details, this date will be automatically imported into subsequent years software for convenience and it will flow through to the Register of Employees.
