Since the 1st of 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.
Click Process Icon number 6 followed by Prepare PSR.
A summary of the PAYE, USC, PRSI & LPT totals included in the submission will be displayed on screen for you to view.
Should you wish to view the detailed contents of the PSR before submission, click 'View'.
Click ‘Submit PSR to Revenue’ when ready.
A confirmation will be shown on screen, once your submission is successful.
Press 'Close' to exit the PSR utility.
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.
Your company name will already be highlighted on the left-hand side - select the drive you wish to backup from the drop-down menu on the right-hand side.
After selecting your backup location, click the ‘Backup’ button.
A prompt will appear to confirm your backup location. If you are happy to proceed, click ‘OK’ to continue with the backup.
A confirmation message will now appear to confirm that your backup has been successful.
Click ‘OK’ followed by ‘Close’ to exit.
