Pension contributions made by your employee can reduce the amount of tax they pay. These contributions may be deducted from their gross pay when calculating their tax. You should not deduct these pension contributions from your employee’s gross pay when you are calculating their Universal Social Charge (USC) and Pay Related Social Insurance (PRSI).
Your employee’s total contributions should not exceed the limits on tax relief for pension contributions. Total contributions include ordinary contributions, Additional Voluntary Contributions (AVCs) and special contributions.
