The 10 minute video by Lisa McNamara below here explains in simple terms:

  • Where the numbers on your wages payslip come from
  • What they mean

Employers and the Wages Payslips

There has been a radical overhaul in the wages system in Ireland. All employers must tell the tax man what wages they are paying out BEFORE they pay them out.  €4,000 fine awaits otherwise.

The other matter to be aware of is most employees do not understand what their payslips are saying. Forward this video below to your staff. There is less room for error when everyone understands that tax has to come out of their hourly wage. We do the payroll for many clients, so if you have any questions, read this and contact us here.
