Dear Employer

The Employer Interim Reconciliation submission period opened on 15 September and will run to 31 October 2017.

During the Interim Reconciliation submission period, employers are required to submit an Employer Reconciliation Declaration (EMP501) and Employee Income Tax Certificates [IRP5/IT3(a)s] for the six month period 1 March to 31 August 2017. The interim IRP5/IT3(a)s for the six month period 1 March to 31 August 2017 must not be issued to an employee unless it is a final certificate (where the employee has left the service of the employer or the employer ceased to be an employer on or before 31 August 2017).

New Income Source Codes 3719/3769, 3720/3770 and/or 3721/3771

Certain dividends in respect of restricted equity instruments are considered to be remuneration from which employees’ tax is deductible. When the above-mentioned codes are imported into or captured on e@syFile™ Employer or eFiling, a directive number will be required. You should enter fifteen zeros (0 x 15) as the directive number on the IRP5/IT3(a)s with these income source codes.

Please note: You need to submit your Monthly Employer Declarations (EMP201) and payments to SARS by the 7th of each month. In instances where the 7th falls on a public holiday, Saturday or Sunday, the due date becomes the last business day prior to the 7th. When making payment, make sure to use the correct Payment Reference Number (PRN) so that your payments are correctly allocated.
