Key Details

Event Closed

ICB Webinar, Remote, Online


The introduction of PAYE Modernisation in January 2019 changed the way bookkeepers submit payroll information to Revenue. PAYE Modernisation has brought with it new and more stringent rules around when and how often we send payroll data to Revenue. All employers, regardless of size, have to comply with the new real time reporting system.

Almost one year later, Paul Byrne looks back at the story so far and decides whether or not PAYE Modernisation has been a success. In the webinar, Paul will also review some of the most common mistakes employers have made to date and what employers should expect in 2020.

Paul Byrne is the Managing Director of Thesaurus Software - the creators of BrightPay payroll software. Last year, BrightPay won ‘Payroll Software of the Year’ at AccountingWEB’s Software Excellence Awards and is shortlisted for a 2019 Luca Award. BrightPay also has a five star rating, a 99% customer satisfaction rate and is used to process the payroll for over 200,000 businesses across Ireland and the UK.
