SARS Employer Interim Reconciliation 2016

The Bi-Annual Payroll reporting for the period 1 March 2016 to 31 August 2016 to SARS is to be completed before the end of October.
Please backup your Payroll as at the end of August 2016 and use this backup for the SARS submission.

There are numerous changes to the format of the file extract to SARS E@syFile as well as new IRP5 codes that need to be setup.
SARS have released a new version of E@syFile (Ver 6.7.0) and clients are encouraged to wait a week or two before installing it as there is an update expected.

There are also updates required to your payroll software before being able to extract the SARS file. Please go to the Downloads section of the Payslip website and log in to download the required files. If you don’t have a login code, please register for this function and a code will be sent to you.

It is important that you download the instructions as well as the program and follow the instructions carefully.

Classic has been upgraded from Version 13.00 to Version 13.01 – available immediately. Payslip, Paylite and PayPower have a bundle installation called “PayPower August 2016” – available from 2 September 

Once the software has been installed, please ensure that your payroll parameters have been setup correctly and that the relevant codes are captured according to the SARS requirements.
