Payroll Submission Report – (PSR)

Payroll Submission Report – (PSR)


Under Real Time Reporting (RTR), you must send a payroll submission electronically to Revenue each time you pay your employees. You can quickly and easily do this in Sage Payroll 2019 by using the Send Payroll Submission option. The payroll submission you make each pay period to Revenue contains:

  • Details of all payments made to employees in the pay run.

Each of your employees will have their own payment date specified on the payroll submission you send to Revenue (each pay period). The payment date is based on the pay method of an employee and the dates set up in your payroll calendar. Read more >

  • The total tax, universal social charge (USC), pay related social insurance (PRSI), and if applicable local property tax (LPT) paid by your employees in the pay run.
  • Employee details, such as name, PPS number, Employment ID and tax/USC status.
  • Details of any starters or leavers from the pay run, and more information.

A full listing of what is on the payroll submission file can be downloaded from here. 

Revenue tracks this information throughout the tax year to confirm that each employee’s PAYE liabilities are being deducted correctly.
