Pension Fund Employers contribute 8.5% Class A employee PRSI on weekly earnings up to €376 and 10.75% anything above it. Majority of the workers in Ireland are considered class A workers. If they earn less than 325EUR per week, they are exempt from pension contributions, the employer will contribute on the employee’s behalf. If the employee earns between 325EUR they contribute 4% of the earnings. From 325.01EUR to 424EUR, the employees receive 12EUR credit for PRSI, which means (4% of 325.01 is 14.08EUR – 12.00EUR credit) the employee contributes only 2.08EUR. From there on, the PRSI is calculated by first finding out 1/6th of employee’s earnings above 325.01EUR, then subtracting this from 12EUR credit and calculating 4% charge on the earnings. Finally deducting the PRSI credit from PRSI charge.
