Pensions - Personal Fund Threshold - New Electronic Notification System
Personal Fund Threshold Notification - Deadline for making Electronic Notification to Revenue Extended
The deadline for making an electronic Personal Fund Threshold notification to Revenue for pension purposes has been extended to 31 July 2015 (see Revenue eBrief No. 64/15).
A new web based electronic system to facilitate notification of a Personal Fund Threshold (PFT) for pension purposes is now available.
With effect from 1 July 2014, a PFT notification must be made via the electronic system. The time limit for making a notification is 12 months after the date on which the system is made available i.e. before 2 July 2015. PFT notifications made on or after 1 July 2014 using the existing paper-based process will not be accepted.
- View Revenue eBrief No.50/14 for further information on the system and who may make a PFT notification.

Accessing and using the PFT notification system
The PFT notification system can be accessed in 2 ways:-
- through the Revenue On-Line Service
- PAYE anytime
If not already registered, an individual will be required to register as a user of one of these services, in advance of accessing the new system.
It should be noted that it will not be possible to submit an electronic PFT notification more than once. It is essential, therefore, that care is taken to ensure that the correct information and details are inserted before submitting the notification.
Enquiries regarding PFTs and the electronic notification system should be addressed to Financial Services (Pensions) District by email at email@example.com. or by post to:
