For 2014 Payroll Refunds can apply to  PAYE, PRSI and Income Levy/USC Refunds for tax years 2010 to 2013.

When you have paid PAYE, PRSI and/or the Income Levy you may be due a refund at the end of the tax year.  It is also possible to benefit from tax refunds/reliefs during the year.  Firstly you need to be aware of all the various tax allowances and credits applicable to you and then use these to reduce payroll liabilities and thus increase take home pay.

Our Tax Back Refund Service is essential for all employees, who have paid tax and think they maybe entitled to a refund. Payroll Matters Ltd will draw upon their expertise in this field to file your tax return and seek refunds on your behalf

PAYE - Tax Back up to 41%
PRSI - Refunds up to 8% 
Income Levy -Refunds up to 6% / USC - Refunds up to 7%

Did you know that when you pay PAYE, PRSI, and Income Levy/USC  very often you are overpaying. Only one in five of the Irish workforce claimed tax back in 2013. Those that did averaged a refund of over €728 each. That was 4 years ago, PAYE & PRSI refunds can be applied for 4 years! That’s 2010, 2011 2012 and 2013; Millions of Euros remain in the Government's coffers because of many taxpayers' failure to seek refunds.
