Employers - Avoid the new 7000Euro Fine

Jimmy Sheehan - Thursday, February 05, 2015

Do you employ staff? If you do then you're about to get a fine...if you don't comply with a really simple rule.

Revenue have recently updated and released the obligation for all Employers to maintain a Register of Employees.

As a minimum you must be capable of producing (on demand from the Revenue) a Register of Employees which includes;

  1. The name, address and Personal Public Service Number (PPSN) of each employee;
  2. The date of commencement of employment of each employee; and
  3. Where relevant, the date of cessation of employment of each employee.

Failure to comply with these requirements will give rise to a penalty of €4,000 and if the employer is a Limited Company then an additional penalty of €3,000 will apply to the Company Secretary of that company.

Here's how to avoid the penalty...

Ensure you, or the company you outsource your payroll to, is using up to date payroll software capable of exporting a Register of Employers.

We use such a software and if your Payroll is currently with someone else then call us for a competitive quote on (01) 601 0005.

Our service makes payroll easy. We prepare payroll for Small Businesses and we run an Outsourced Payroll Service for businesses from 1 to 1000 employees.

We deal with the staff, we can collect the hours and email payslips directly to the staff members.
