Written answers (Question to Finance)

Since January 2019, employers and pension providers report pay and statutory deductions to Revenue in real-time on or before each pay date. The introduction of PAYE Modernisation also removed the requirement for employers to complete the various forms that were part of the previous reporting regime, for example forms P30, P35, P45 and P60.

As a replacement for the form P60 (certificate of total annual pay and deductions), Revenue will provide an online ‘Employment Detail Summary’ for each employee. This service will be available from early January 2020 in respect of 2019. The online Summary will include the pay and statutory details as reported to Revenue in real-time by employers and pension providers during 2019.

Employees can access their individual ‘Employment Detail Summary’ through Revenue’s myAccount service and can view, download or print the relevant information as required.

For customers who do not have access to myAccount or experience any difficulties using the system, the ‘Employment Detail Summary’ information can be sourced by contacting Revenue at telephone number 01-7383636 or by writing to ‘Freepost’, PAYE Services, P.O. Box 327, Cork.
