Illness Benefit 2018

From January 2018 employers will no longer be responsible for returning illness benefit via payroll instead the Revenue Commissioners will issue new tax credit certificates to the Employers reducing the employee’ s tax credits to collect the tax due on the amounts received.

Employers need to check Ros regularly to ensure they are using the most up to date information. The amount of Illness benefit received will no longer be displayed P60 or on the P35. If Employers operate a sick pay scheme the employer must request a copy of the illness benefit receipt issued to the employee as these will no longer be sent to the employers direct.

Our Payroll Solutions Team can assist you in implementing these changes and answer any queries you may have.
