Stay compliant with changes in Irish payroll

A once in a generation change to pension arrangements in the Republic of Ireland has prompted us to increase the timing for our ever popular Irish update course from a half day to a full day. After 10 years of debate, Ireland has finally set a date for the introduction of its version of pensions auto enrolment. The Irish government estimate that at least three quarters of a million Irish employees will need to be enrolled in a qualifying pension arrangement on 1st January 2024. With the adoption of a "big bang" approach, this means that all employers regardless of size will need to ensure compliance with the new legislation at the same time. UK employers will well remember the challenges introducing AE posed, and the Irish rules will prove similarly complex. On top of all this, there is also the usual summary of the Irish budget changes and annual payroll and HR legislative review covering all the current Irish hot topics.

This course is vital for all payroll and HR staff with a responsibility for Irish payroll to ensure they are fully up to speed.

"I've booked the HR and Payroll Update course most years and during roles with at least 3 different employers. One thing remains the same; a course that is relevant, well delivered and enjoyable and that is key when trying to retain the many pieces of legislation changes to which payroll professionals are exposed."
