Streamlining SARP Reporting: A Guide to the New eSARP Portal

As we kick off the new year, there’s a significant change on the horizon for employers utilizing the Special Assignee Relief Programme (SARP) in Ireland. The Revenue has introduced a game-changing initiative – the eSARP Portal on Revenue Online Service (ROS). This online platform aims to enhance the efficiency of SARP reporting, providing a seamless experience for employers and their payroll outsourcing partners.

Key Changes

Starting January 1, 2024, the Revenue’s new eSARP Portal will be the go-to platform for the preparation and submission of all Form SARP 1As and SARP Employer Returns. This marks a shift towards a more streamlined and digital approach, simplifying the reporting process for companies availing of SARP.

Benefits of the eSARP Portal:

  1. Efficiency: The online portal offers a more efficient and time-saving method for employers to complete their SARP reporting obligations.
  2. Accessibility: With the eSARP Portal on ROS, you can access and manage your SARP submissions anytime, anywhere, providing greater flexibility.
  3. Accuracy: The digital interface reduces the risk of manual errors and ensures that the submitted information aligns with the latest regulatory requirements.
  4. Real-time Updates: Stay informed with real-time updates and notifications on the status of your SARP submissions through the user-friendly portal.

To ensure a smooth transition to the new eSARP Portal, here are a few steps employers and payroll professionals can take:

  1. Familiarize Yourself: Take some time to explore the new eSARP Portal and familiarize yourself with its features and functionalities.
  2. Update Processes: Review and update your internal processes to align with the digital reporting requirements of the eSARP Portal.
  3. Training: If applicable, provide training to your team or engage with your payroll outsourcing partner to ensure everyone is well-versed in using the new platform.
  4. Stay Informed: Keep an eye on official communications from the Revenue for any additional updates or guidance related to the eSARP Portal.


The introduction of the eSARP Portal is a positive step towards modernizing and simplifying the SARP reporting process. Embracing these changes will not only enhance efficiency but also contribute to a more accurate and compliant payroll process for employers utilizing the SARP scheme.
