Annual Update Day

 Home / Annual Update Day

New Dates Added!

Dublin City



10th January
12th January
18th January



Now that Budget 2017 has arrived speculation has been proven correct with significant changes to the USC rates and thresholds together with changes to our Social Welfare system. The effect of these changes will be wide ranging and have a major impact on payroll.

This Annual Update Day will cover all of the relevant changes to PAYE, PRSI and USC introduced in Budget 2017 which affect every employer and employee. In addition, this Update Day will cover the main changes affecting the operation of payroll introduced during the past year, to include PAYE, PRSI & USC, Revenue and Social Welfare Practices, Employment law (most notably the impact of the introduction of Paternity Leave on employers since 1st September 2016); and other proposed changes. If you work in payroll, HR or Accounts, this course is essential for you. 

This seminar will be presented by a Chartered Tax Advisor who specialises in the area of employment taxation.

All attendees will be provided with a comprehensive handout which will act as an invaluable reference document.
