We recently posted an in-system notification to let our customers know that the Employer Interim Reconciliation filing season will run from 18 September 2023 to 31 October 2023.
What is the Interim Filing Season All About?
The Employer Interim Reconciliation filing season requires employers to submit accurate reconciliation declarations for the six month transaction period that runs from 1 March to 31 August 2023. These reconciliations are based on all Monthly Employer Declarations (EMP201) submitted, payments made to the South African Revenue Services (SARS), as well as Interim Employee Income Tax Certificates (IRP5/IT3) where applicable.
