PAYE Modernisation Release 2: Bulk RPN Retrieval

Last week, we announced the release of Phase 1 of our major PAYE Modernisation changes – uploading of ROS Authorisation Certificates, which you can read about here.

As promised, we’re pleased to inform you that today we’ve released Phase 2: bulk retrieval of employee RPNs. As with the ROS Certificates, this is an important step in ensuring you’re ready to process payroll in 2019. This short and handy guide will take you through the steps of bulk RPN retrieval.

PAYE Modernisation Guide – Release 2

As part of this release,  SimplePay will automatically retrieve RPNs once for the 2019 tax year for all employees that have a PPSN but no RPN. This functionality will soon be expanded to provide daily automated updates.

As always, if you have any queries or concerns around this new functionality and process, please feel free to contact our friendly support team who will gladly assist.

PAYE Modernisation Release 1: Authorisation Certificates

Over the past few months, we have been discussing PAYE Modernisation on our blog. The new functionality for PAYE Modernisation will be released in stages over the next 2 weeks. We are happy to announce the first release, which allows you to upload ROS Digital Certificates to SimplePay.

If you are unsure about obtaining these Digital Certificates, please refer to this guide provided by Revenue.

This is a very important process for PAYE Modernisation and all employers or agents (such as payroll bureaus or accounting firms) will need to do this before processing payslips in 2019. Without uploading these certificates, requesting RPNs from ROS and submitting payroll information to ROS is not possible.

To help you through this process, we have compiled a useful guide which can be downloaded here:

PAYE Modernisation Guide – Release 1

Please note that these guides are in PDF format and you will therefore need to have a PDF reader on your computer to view them.

We’ll be in touch again shortly with instructions on how to retrieve RPNs, which contain information on the cut-off points and tax credits of employees.

If you have any difficulties with this new process, please do not hesitate to contact our support team who will be happy to assist.
