Clear Group have been running our weekly payroll meticulously since day one. They are a pleasure to deal with when queries arise. Amendments to payroll are carried out immediately. Professional level of expertise. Highly recommended service.

Maurice O’Halloran
Balbriggan Chamber of Commerce (Business Organisation, Dublin)

Clear Group have been operating our payroll since 2009. They provide expertise, in a changing legislative environment. It makes solid business sense for us to outsource. Moreover, we save both time and money in the process, instead of operating in house. Our growing staff are key for business success. Ensuring our payroll is timely and accurate is essential. Clear Group provide an excellent service. I am more than happy to recommend them.

Frequently asked questions

How do you help overseas companies to pay employees in Ireland?

Every package is tailored to the requirements of the business. Your service might include any or all of the following:

  • Registering as an overseas employer in Ireland

  • Advising on social security numbers (Personal Public Service (PPS) numbers in Ireland) for staff locating to Ireland for the first time

  • Irish payroll tax advice to ensure maximum tax savings

  • Assistance with setting up an Irish bank account

  • Assistance with setting up pensions, private health care, or company car payments

  • Direct payment to your employees in euros

Can you manage payments to employees?
Yes. As an authorised bureau with Ireland’s main banks we can execute wage payments from your company bank account direct to individual employee bank accounts. This batch of payments can be authorised by your company if required.
Will you send payslips to employees?

Yes. Payroll processing includes providing individual payslips to each of your employees every time the payroll is run. Hence, weekly employees will receive a payslip once a week. Monthly employees will receive a payslip once per month, and so forth.

Can you manage tax payments to the Revenue Commissioners?

Yes. Clear Group authorises payroll tax payments to Irish Revenue on your behalf. We will notify you of the payment amount for the period. Direct debit payments are subsequently collected by the Revenue Commissioners directly from your company bank account on the 23rd of the particular month.

Can you manage additional payments and deductions to payroll such as pension, health insurance, Benefits in Kind, bonus payments, union fees, or staff advances?

Yes. Clear Group will manage and operate any and all additions and deductions to your company payroll, and the associated tax calculations for employees. These often include payments such as health insurance, pensions, or car allowances. We can report all additions and deductions to your finance team or to third-party providers.
