Lo­cal busi­ness reps at­tend PAYE mod­erni­sa­tion event

New Ross Standard - - NEWS - By BREN­DAN KEANE

NEW Ross & Dis­trict Cham­ber hosted a break­fast brief­ing event last week aimed at in­form­ing mem­bers about changes that are com­ing into place in the New Year based around the PAYE sys­tem.

The guest speaker at the event - which was held in the Kennedy Bou­tique Ho­tel – was Carmel For­tune from the of­fice of the Rev­enue Com­mis­sion­ers.

Among those in at­ten­dance were em­ploy­ers, HR man­agers, and pay­roll ad­min­is­tra­tors from lo­cal com­pa­nies who were keen to find out how the changes – which will be in place from Jan­uary 1 – will af­fect them.

Some of the key points dis­cussed at the sem­i­nar were new sys­tems that will stream­line the pro­cesses through which busi­nesses meet their PAYE re­port­ing obli­ga­tions.

The at­ten­dees were in­formed that it’s hoped the changes will al­le­vi­ate some of the bur­den cur­rently ex­pe­ri­enced by em­ploy­ers in this re­gard.

Speak­ing to this news­pa­per fol­low­ing the sem­i­nar a spokesper­son for the Cham­ber said: ‘Em­ploy­ers will now be re­port­ing to the rev­enue in real time.’

At the event Ms For­tune high­lighted key things that em­ploy­ers must have done: ‘Get­ting ready for the PAYE Mod­erni­sa­tion em­ploy­ers must en­sure that all em­ploy­ees are reg­is­tered and re­ceived a PC2 and have a cor­rect PPS num­ber for each em­ployee.’

She also en­cour­aged peo­ple to ad­dress queries to the Rev­enue Com­mis­sion­ers web­site at rev­enue.ie or by phone to the Em­ploy­ers Helpline at 01 7383638.

New Ross & Dis­trict Cham­ber thanked Ms For­tune to tak­ing the time to visit the town and ex­plain the changes.
