When you start a new job

When you start a new job, you need to give your Personal Public Service Number (PPSN) to your new employer. Your new employer will notify Revenue that you have commenced when they first request a Revenue Payroll Notification (RPN).

Revenue will issue you with a Tax Credit Certificate (TCC) and make an RPN available to your employer.

Your employer can then make the correct deductions from your salary.

If you do not give your new employer your PPSN, you may pay too much tax. Your employer will be required to deduct Emergency Tax from your pay.

Your new job might be your first job in Ireland. If it is, you need to sign in to myAccount to register it using the Jobs and Pensions service.


You can view, print or download your TCC in the 'My Documents' folder on myAccount.
