TWSS Scheme Update

  • The original end date of 15th June has of course been extended to 31st August. Practical steps on what ‘exiting’ the scheme means will be covered closer to the time. One question being asked is whether employee or employer eligibility has changed as a result of this extension. It has not, eligibility rules remain the same.


  • Over the weekend, any employees who have received a TWSS or PUP payment have been put on a week one basis by Revenue. This will mean larger RPN volumes the next time a lookup is run. Revenue’s reason is so employees stop building up any (further) statutory arrears. If an employee wants to go back on cumulative, they can raise it through MyEnquiries and their Revenue caseworker will look at each request.


  • Discussions on reconciliations for the transitional phase continue with Revenue. We hope to have these completed over the next couple of weeks. At which point we will run another webinar.


  • Since our last communication, Revenue FAQ’s have been updated a number of times. FAQ 15 is available here.


  • FAQ 14 included a process for ladies on maternity in January/February who were heretofore excluded from TWSS. Section 3.15 from page 20. If you had been paying these employees TWSS in anticipation of this change, refunds refused to date will be paid subsequent to complete this process for each employee.
