RE-SUBMISSION OF 2017 EMPLOYER ANNUAL RECONCILIATION DECLARATION (EMP501) AND IRP5/IT3(a) CERTIFICATES
Due to technical error on the SARS e@syFile™/eFiling systems, all Employers are to resubmit their 201702 Annual Reconciliation Declaration for those certificates that contain codes 3701, 3702, 3802, and/or 3816. The value against code 4582 was not pre-populated on the employees’ Personal Income Tax Returns (ITR12s), which could affect the calculation of the maximum allowable deduction in respect of the retirement fund contributions.
Before re-submitting the reconciliation, ensure you have updated your e@syFile™ to version 6.7.5. Once your e@syFile™ is updated and your backup restored, perform a Full Re-submission from the Utilities menu.
Employee’s who have already submitted their ITR12s return will have to Request for Correction and resubmit their return. Employees can only resubmit 24 hours after the Employer has resubmitted the annual reconciliation.
