Since 1 January 2007, Farm Assist customers are no longer excused from paying PRSI. You may be liable to pay Class 'S' contributions on your income from self-employment. If you are not already registered as self-employed please contact your local tax office. When you send in your annual returns to the tax office they will let you know if you have to pay PRSI. If you do not have to pay PRSI you may be able to pay Voluntary Contributions.
