Topics & Speakers:

Sinead Sweeney, PAYE Modernisation Change Manager, Revenue Commissioners will speak about PAYE Modernisation and Real Time Reporting

PAYE Modernisation and Real Time Reporting comes into effect on 1 January 2019. The way in which we communicate and send payroll information to Revenue is changing. The objective of PAYE Modernisation allows the Revenue, employers and employees to access the most accurate, up-to-date information relating to pay and statutory payroll deductions. PAYE Modernisation will be effective from the 1st of January 2019 and will apply to all employers.


Ken Killoran, Tax Director, Employment Tax and Global Mobility Services, Mazars will speak about Employer Tax Obligations in Relation to Inbound Employees to Ireland

With many employees coming to work in Ireland as short-term business travellers, short and long-term assignees and permanent transfers, this can cause headaches for employers from a PAYE perspective. Ken will address the Irish PAYE issues for employers to be aware of in relation to such inbound employees to Ireland, including the new Revenue manual that issued in this area recently.

This seminar is for small and medium enterprises who want to set or reset their business strategy to move their business to the next level.
