ROS P35 - Submitting the P35 on ROS

Please NOTE: From 1 January 2019, the P35 is abolished in line with PAYE Modernisation. This process is, therefore, only applicable to preceding years.

Once you have completed the Preparation of the P35 in CollSoft Payroll you must upload the P35 to ROS in order to complete the transmission of the P35 information to the Revenue Commissioners.

In order to access your ROS account you must use a PC on which a ROS digital certificate has been saved. The owner of the certificate will hold the necessary associated password linked to that certificate.

The P35 submission via ROS is a simple step by step process.

1. Login into ROS

  • To login into ROS simply select the option from the ROS menu.

  • Alternatively from your web browser go to
  • Select the ROS Certificate
    If your ROS certificate does not display then you must 'Browse' to the location of the ROS Digital Certificate, the certificate is normally saved to the local disk, C:/ROS/ROSCerts/. The certificate will have a name given to it by you when it was issued to you and will have a file extension .p12, e.g. payrolladmin.p12
  • Enter the password associated with the selected certificate

4. Preview the P35

  • Once the upload is complete ROS will read the contents of the P35 file and display the contents of the file.
  • An employee listing will display with the pay and tax details contained within the file for each employee contained within the file.
  • A total of the tax year P30 payments will be summarized.

This P30 record is not taken from CollSoft Payroll or the uploaded P35 file, this record of payments is the totals that ROS have recorded as made during the year for this particular employer which were made via the periodical P30s.

A P30 may not be included if the date of payment is later than the filing date of the P35. If this summary excludes the final P30 payment of the tax year, for which payment has already been committed then you can simply update the summary to reflect this and choose to 'Calculate' the total payment on account.
