Submitting a P46/P45 Part 3 to ROS

For new employees who have provided a P45 from previous employment, a P45 Part 3 can be submitted to ROS , in order to register the new employee.

For new employees commencing mid-year who do not provide their new employer with a P45, a P46 can be completed and submitted to ROS instead.

The submission of a P46 or P45 Part 3 to Revenue will result in Revenue issuing a P2C/ Tax Credit Certificate to the new employer for their new employee(s) via ROS.
