PAYE Modernisation: Key Facts you must know to ensure 100% compliance

With just over one month to go employers and payroll processors will need to be prepared for the role out of PAYE Modernisation by the 1st of January 2019. PAYE Modernisation means that employers must now operate and process their payroll in ‘real time’. The real-time information must be submitted to Revenue each time an employee is paid. P30s, P35s and P45s will be abolished with employers submitting this information to Revenue electronically in the Employer Submission every pay cycle.

The new legislation will modernise and update the current Pay As You Earn (PAYE) system allowing for a more accurate reporting system of pay, tax and other deductions. PAYE Modernisation will also keep an up-to-date record of leavers as employers run their payroll.

Payroll software will alleviate the majority of the additional workload as software products will be capable of directly and electronically communicating with Revenue. Employers who use manual systems should allow for additional processing time and expect increased reporting obligations. Those smaller employers who tend to make just one yearly submission (using a P35 Form) to Revenue will be significantly affected. Under PAYE Modernisation, the yearly submission is no longer an option as all employers will have to make their Employer Submission each pay period to Revenue. While Revenue is yet to confirm how they will deal with non-compliance, it is expected that penalties will be issued to employers who fail to comply with PAYE Modernisation.
