Shadow payroll

Shadow Payroll


Shadow payroll is a mechanism used to assist with the reporting and tax withholding obligations in a host country for an employee who is remaining on his or her home country’s payroll system while on assignment in the host country.

The following procedures will apply:

  • The employer should include all income paid to the employee from the date an assignment commences including the income from the date PAYE is applied.
  • The Revenue Payroll Notification (RPN) will operate on a week 1 basis.
