COVID-19 IRISH EMPLOYERS’ REFUND SCHEME

Updated: Aug 27, 2020

The Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection in Ireland has introduced a refund scheme for employers. Under an arrangement developed with Revenue, employers who have to temporarily lay-off staff and who are not in a position to make any wage payment to them, are asked to keep their employees on the payroll and pay them an amount of €203 – the equivalent of the COVID-19 Support Payment.

When they submit payroll returns to Revenue via their payroll provider, Revenue will refund the employer the €203.

Please contact payroll@act.london or by telephone on +44 207 432 6050 for further information and guidance.
