P30 - Submitting via ROS

Refer to our KB article, P30 - Prepare for ROS, for guidance on how to prepare the P30 file for ROS submission.

Once all payroll is up to date for all relevant wage periods within a P30 return period (i.e. monthly/quarterly) then CollSoft will create a P30 file that can be submitted to Revenue via Revenue Online System (ROS).

As the P30 return is created and exported from CollSoft it is referred to as a form that has been created 'Offline' with ROS.



  • Login to your ROS account at www.revenue.ie
  • ROS will open the My Services page within your account by default.
  • It is within My Services that you will see 'Returns and Payments' section.
  • The first File Return Option is to 'Complete a Form On-line', using this option you simply choose your return type and input all entries manually on screen for submission.
  • The second option is to 'Upload Form(s) Created Off-line', using this option you upload a file which contains all the entries required which has been created elsewhere, i.e. CollSoft Payroll.
  • It is this second option, 'Upload Form(s) Created Off-line' that you will choose to upload the P30 which you created by CollSoft Payroll.
  • Select the 'P30' submission type
  • Choose 'Upload Return'
