Revenue Payroll Notifications contain the tax credits and cut-off points for employees, which are used to calculate the PAYE liability for your employees. It is therefore essential to request an RPN before creating an employee’s payslip so that the most up to date information from Revenue is used in the calculation. If no RPN is requested for a new employee, the employee will be taxed on an emergency basis.
To create or update RPNs for employees in bulk:
- Go to Employees > Bulk Actions > Update RPNs.
- Use the checkboxes next to the employees’ names to select which employees you wish to request an RPN for.
- Click Create / Update at the top of the screen.
- The tax information will then be populated (if no RPN has been requested before) or updated (if an RPN has been requested before).
Note: An authorisation certificate must be uploaded and successfully linked to the company before RPNs can be requested.
