A P60 is a certificate of income issued by you the employer to all employees in your employment at the end of the tax year. A P60 is an employee's certificate of income for the tax year.  P60s are only issued to employees who are still in your employment at 31st December.  Only one copy is required per employee.

It should be issued to all employees by the 15th of February.

Revenue no longer issue P60 stationery. All payroll software providers are permitted to print the P60 template to blank A4 paper.

 A P60 template is available on the ROS online and offline application, however we cannot support printing to this template.

BrightPay facilitates both printing and emailing of P60s. Before sending a P60 electronically, however, it is advised that an employer checks with an employee that they are happy to receive their P60 in this manner, in the event that an employee does not have the facility to access and print a copy securely.
