Payslip Delivery Service Delays
The salary and pensions of staff and retirees paid on payrolls operated by the Department of Education and Skills are continuing to issue as normal.
There will be delays in the issuing of payslips in the next few weeks due to demands on Revenue staff processing critical correspondence. The payslips are printed and posted by the Revenue Print and Mailing area on behalf of the Department. Due to the Coronavirus/Covid-19 emergency, Revenue are assigning priority to work being undertaken for the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection and also work critical to Revenue. Ensuring the health and safety of staff is paramount and Revenue are operating a limited service.
Some general details on salary and pension can be obtained by accessing “My Account- ROS” on the Revenue website.
The Payroll Division of the Department regrets any inconvenience this causes.
Salaries and pensions will continue to transfer into the bank accounts of payees as normal.
The Payroll Division of the Department is not issuing P60s since 01 January, 2020.
The “Employment Detail Summary” on the Revenue website has all the information required and replaces the P60. The “Employment Detail Summary” is accessible on the Revenue website in myAccount. It is accessible through the ‘Review your tax’ link in PAYE Services. This summary verifies your income for a historical tax year or for the current tax year (ie. a year-to-date figure). It contains your pay and statutory deductions for the year as reported by the Department. The document can be used as proof of income where required by third parties.
There is a facility for you to generate a PDF. You can send the PDF directly to the bank or financial institution and you can provide the financial institution/third party with the Access Code. This enables the financial institution to securely view the information and they can be satisfied that the details provided are an accurate copy of the income returned to Revenue.
This facility also eliminates the requirement for the Department to issue financial statements required for banks and other financial institutions..
