Transition from 2019 to 2020

Requesting a Revenue Payroll Notification (RPN) for 2020

RPNs for 2020 are available from Revenue in early December 2019. They will be updated in real time from 1 January 2020.

Do not use a 2019 RPN for payments which are made in 2020. You must ensure that you are using the correct RPN.

You should request RPNs for all employees under each employer registered number for the first payroll run of 2020. You must operate the details returned to you in the RPN. This applies even where nil credits and nil rate band are returned. Where there is no RPN available for an employee, the emergency basis must be applied.

The Employment ID assigned in 2019 will carry forward and will be included in the first RPN of 2020.
