PAYE modernisation

Welcome to the PAYE modernisation centre

Real time reporting of payroll information came into effect on 1 January 2019. This new payroll reporting regime means that employers now report to Revenue pay, tax and other deductions, as well as details of any employees leaving their employment when they run their payroll. Employees have full visibility of their payroll data submitted by their employer to Revenue in real time. Revenue have access to complete data on each employee every time employers run their payroll.
