Payroll Services in Ireland?
Link Global are well equipped to handle your Ireland payroll services. Salary, taxes and social security made simple with our internationally renowned payroll solutions.
Our approach to overseas payroll minimise your liabilities leaving you worry-free. Link Global provide comprehensive payroll services for Ireland and worldwide.
The contract market has grown enormously, particularly in the IT and finance sectors, but also in pharmaceuticals, construction and catering, so there are many overseas opportunities. Link Global Management can provide a full range of payroll services in Ireland. You’ll be engaged on our payroll and income is paid in the form of salary, allowances and expenses, the proportion of each part depending on your circumstances. For salary, tax and social security, we deduct your tax and social security at source on a PAYE basis, and payments are made to the authorities on your behalf.
You can reduce this taxable amount by offsetting some business expenses. There are different tax rates and bands according to your earnings level and marital/family status. We’ll discuss your personal circumstances with you and help you minimise your tax and social security liabilities, within the boundaries of Irish legislation. As for your tax return, we’ll take care of this for you. It gets filed each year in Ireland, with advice and help from us.
Income tax in Ireland
If you’re resident in Ireland, you must pay tax on your worldwide income there, that is if you’re in Ireland for 183 days or more in the tax year or for 280 days or more in the tax year and the previous year. But if you’re living in Ireland for less days, you’re not considered tax resident and pay tax only on income earned in Ireland.
Tax is charged as a percentage of your income. The percentage that you pay depends on the amount of your income. The first part of your income, up to €33 800, is taxed at 20%. This is known as the standard rate of tax and the amount that it applies to is known as the standard rate tax band. The remainder of your income is taxed at the higher rate of tax, 40% in 2017.
Most countries have double tax agreements with Ireland. These agreements usually spare you from double taxation. Under many bilateral tax agreements, the amount of tax you paid in the country where you work will be offset against the tax you owe in your country of residence. In other cases, the income earned in the country where you work might be taxable only in that country and exempt from tax in your country of residence.
“The quality of service that Link provide is second to none.”

Ireland has a justifiable reputation for being a hospitable and welcoming country.
For urban culture, you’ve got lively Dublin and continental Cork to discover. Pubs and music are a big part of Irish life, as is Guinness and delicious craft beers. The Irish are warm and always ready to ‘shoot the breeze’ with you, preferably over a drink.
This country might be small but it’s got stunning Atlantic coastlines, magical castles and wild scenery. You’ll love it if you’re into outdoor life, especially hiking and camping. Yes, it rains a lot. The Emerald Isle is green and lush because of this and the rich green grass is the reason for the creamy milk that goes into some of the best ice cream, chocolate and cheese products you can buy.
