Claire Davey

Director, Head of PAYE & Personal Tax Compliance

KPMG in Ireland

Claire Davey is head of our PAYE and Personal tax compliance services team in our People Services department. Our compliance services team cover a wide range of compliance related services.

A large part of Claire’s specialist area involves advising local and foreign employers with regard to the operation of the Irish PAYE withholding tax system, in respect of both their domestic and cross border employees. Claire’s team provides advice on cross border PAYE compliance scenarios as well as Irish shadow payroll calculations which require an understanding of the tax treatment of assignment related benefits and Irish expatriate tax and social security reliefs. The PAYE compliance team also provides a fully managed outsourced payroll service to local Irish employers, senior executives and confidential payrolls.

This specialist team provides peace of mind to our corporate clients that their PAYE reporting and controls are compliant and their withholding tax obligations with regard to their employees and senior executives are being met.

Claire’s team also manages the end to end personal tax return process for the department. Services include preparation of personal tax and capital gains tax return services for both global mobility and private clients. This also includes tax equalization reconciliations and calculation of foreign tax credits and double tax reliefs.

Claire’s expert compliance team also has extensive experience advising both resident and non-resident contractors and subcontractors with regard to the RCT withholding tax compliance matters.
