no prob. if for eg you get fired/laid off/quit in November and start a new job in Feb you dont necessairly need your P45 as its a new tax year. sadly the process can be longer tho.
Do you have a P45 from your last employer that you paid tax with? if so you can still hand this in to your new employer and continue as if nothing ever happened.
If you dont have a P45 you will need to contact your nearest PAYE office on www.revenue.ie
and contact them with your PPS no and your employers registration number. they will then send you out a tax cert,a copy of which will also be given to your new employer who will put it throught the process.
once you have done either of the above you will get your tax back in your paypackey within 3 weeks max.
as for not paying PAYE for the last two years the tax man wont know of it unless you tell him as far as your record is concerned you fell off the face of the planet for 2 years.
