P30 ROS File

This utility facilitates fast, effective upload of your P30 return to ROS. In order to use this facility, your company must first be registered to use the Revenue Online Service.

The P30 is the total of:

  • the tax deducted from the pay (PAYE, USC, LPT) of all employees less any tax refunded to them 

  • the total PRSI contributions (the amount deducted from pay plus the amount payable by the employer) and should be remitted to the Collector General within 14 days from the end of the income tax month during which the deductions were made.

For employers who file their returns and associated tax payments via ROS, time limits are extended to the 23rd of the month immediately following the income tax month during which the deductions were made.
