National Payroll Week

Anne Brady McQuillans DFK is joining in the salute to the Irish worker and payroll professionals by participating in National Payroll Week.

National Payroll Week is a public awareness campaign that pays tribute to payroll professionals and the fact that they not only process thousands of payments each week but they do so accurately and on time.

With each and every payment issued, the payroll department must make the correct deductions for PAYE, PRSI, USC etc. and any delay or error has serious financial consequences that not only affect you, but the companys bottom line.

Our dedicated payroll department is staffed with highly skilled professionals who are experts at meeting deadlines and answering employee queries and who know all the required tax credits and deductions.

National Payroll week is also in aid of the Irish Charity Organisation Barretstown. We are delighted to be able to show our support for such a great cause also.


Barretstown helps children affected by serious illness regain their confidence and self-esteem. They rebuild lives affected by childhood cancer through a program of fun based activities in Barretstown House in Co Kildare. Hospitals' primary focus is on the physical effects of serious illness, while Barretstown helps to heal the emotional scars.

In 2011 Barretstown celebrates its 17th anniversary and in those 17 years, more than 18,000 children and families will have been to Barretstown free of charge. Each year the charity's dedicated fundraising team must raise Euro 5 million, so that more children and families can attend these life changing programmes.

96% of this money must come from voluntary sources including individuals, community events and corporate partners. IPASS is delighted to be able to use National Payroll Day as an opportunity to raise funds for the marvellous work carried out by Barretstown.
