Have you filed your P35 return?

P60The P35 2015 Deadline is fast approaching - 15th February 2015. The extended date for ROS customers who pay and file is the 23rd February 2015. 

There are two methods available to file your P35:

 1. Revenue Online Service

ROS provides the facility to securely file the P35 Return on-line and to pay any balance due on-line by debit /credit card or ROS debit instruction. The P35 Return can be filed via ROS if a ROS compatible computerised payroll or a manual payroll is used. 

2. Paper return

If a manual payroll is used a paper return consisting of an original P35 Declaration, original P35L(s), P35 LF and P35L/T(s) should be submitted.


As an employer you may face criminal proceedings for the non-submission of a P35 return and you may be liable to a fine of up to a max of €5,000 or to a term of imprisonment.

Failure to submit a complete P35 return by the 15th February deadline will make you liable to a penalty up to a maximum of €4,000 and you also risk a possible revenue audit.

It may cause your employees unnecessary difficulty and delay when claiming social welfare benefits.

Important Points


All employers must print P60s on their own stationery as Revenue is no longer making P60 stationery available for employers to print P60s.

If you are making your return on ROS you must now print P60s onto your own blank stationery. A template of the Revenue P60 is available on ROS and you can print P60s onto blank stationery from this template. The P60 template is also available through Payroll Software providers.

Note: P60s should only be given to employees in employment with the employer on 31st December 2014.
