Sars issues new look e-format forms for employers


SA Revenue Service (Sars) announced that it is introducing new look e-format forms on eFiling for the PAYE Interim Reconciliation which opens on 16 September 2019. The statement reads as follows:

“Sars is continuously striving to enhance our systems and forms aiming to promote ease and fairness of doing business with us. As a result we are introducing cleaner format forms which will be available on eFiling but not on e@syFile. We will make the new format available for e@syFile at a later stage but until such notice e@syFile will maintain the current screens. 

“Our eFiling platform will adopt a new look and feel for the EMP201, EMP501, EMP601 (Tax Certificate Cancellation Declaration), EMP701 (Reconciliation Declaration Adjustment) as well as the interim Employee Income Tax Certificate (IRP5/IT3(a)s –  for the six month period: 1 March to 31 August 2019).

“We encourage employers to make use of Sars eFiling. Please note that the Sars eFiling registration process will be simplified and will take place via the Sars website www.sars.gov.za and no longer via the www.sarsefiling.co.za URL.

“Please note that you will only be able to use eFiling if you are registered as an eFiler and that you may be asked to visit a Sars branch to confirm the information given.”
