Arklow This Week 23rd November 2018

Revenue PAYE Changes

The Arklow & District Chamber of Commerce are delighted to invite you to the following FREE Breakfast Event which will focus on “Revenue PAYE Changes 2019”.

From the 1st of January 2019, all payroll systems will need to be processed in real time, where employers will be required to calculate and report their employees pay and deductions as they are being paid. This PAYE improvement aims to make it easier for employers to pay the correct amount of income tax, PRSI, USC & local property tax and send these figures directly through to Revenue. As an employer it is important to ensure that records are up to date, and that all existing payroll obligations are met.

Mr. Eric Hendy, Managing Partner of local Accountancy firm R Hendy & Co (Chartered Accountants & Registered Auditors, Personal Insolvency Practitioners) will deliver essential information and provide expert advice on this important topic.

The morning event promises to be very interesting and informative & we look forward to seeing you all bright & early (Tea/Coffee & a light breakfast will be provided).

Please contact the Chamber office at chamber@arklow.ie or 0402 26909 to confirm your attendance.
