The RPN will tell your employer how much Income Tax (IT) and Universal Social Charge (USC) to deduct from your pay.
Register for Income Tax
When you start working for the first time, you must register yourself as soon as possible. This is to avoid paying emergency tax. You must do this even if it is a part-time or temporary job.
To do this, you must:
- apply for your Personal Public Service Number (PPSN), if you do not already have one. This is available from the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection.
- register for myAccount.
Register your new job
When you receive your myAccount password, you will be able to register your new job. To register, click on the ‘Update job or pension details’ link in ‘PAYE Services’ on the myAccount site. We will work out the tax credits that you can claim.
View your Tax Credit Certificate (TCC)
You will be able to view your TCC within two working days. To view your TCC, click on the ‘Manage your tax <Year> link in ‘PAYE Services’ in myAccount. An employer copy showing your total tax credits and rate bands will be made available to your new employer. Your employer can then make the correct tax deductions from your pay.
