PAYE modernisation – what every employer needs to know

The SFA Business Bytes events, which are entirely free of charge, offer small businesses access to expert information and advice and an opportunity to network with their peers. The series is supported by Bord Gáis Energy.

Revenue is currently implementing the most significant reform of the PAYE system since its introduction in 1960. All employers will have to update their business processes to allow real time reporting to Revenue.

There are a number of actions that employers need to take now and throughout 2018, whether you use payroll software or not.

Sinead Sweeney, Change and Communications Manager for the PAYE modernisation project in Revenue, delivered this session for SFA members. Sinead is a qualified Revenue professional with over 20 years tax experience. She helped delegates to understand the changes that are being made and outlined the steps they should take to prepare their businesses for a smooth transition on 1 January 2019.
