EMPLOYER ANNUAL RECONCILIATIONS (EMP 501)

Every employer who is registered for Pay-as-you-earn(PAYE), Unemployment Insurance Fund(UIF) or Skills Development Levy(SDL), should submit an EMP501.

An employer is required to submit accurate reconciliation declaration (EMP501) in respect of the monthly declarations (EMP201) that was submitted, payments made and the IRP5 / IT3(a) certificates for the following periods:

  • Annual period: this is for the period from 1 March 2016 to 28 February 2017
  • Interim period: this is for the period from 1 March 2017 to 31 August 2017

The Employer Annual Reconciliations allow employers to accurately calculate the difference, if any, between the total value of the tax certificates issued, the total liability declared (EMP201) and the total payments made to SARS.

All employers are required to submit their Employer Annual Reconciliations (EMP 501) annually to SARS before 31 May 2017.

It is recommended that employers accurately verify and update each employee’s personal and financial details before submitting their Annual Reconciliation Declaration (EMP501) and Employees Income Tax Certificates [IRP5/IT3(a)s] to SARS.

Penalties are charged on the following:
  1. Non-submission of an Employer Annual Reconciliation (EMP501) on or before the due date.
  2. Non-submission of employee IRP5 / IT3(a) certificates.
  3. Submission of incorrect or inaccurate data relating to the IRP5 / IT3(a) certificates
