Payroll Setup > Company Setup > Employer Filing Details

Before you can do bi-annual SARS filing and electronic UIF submissions, you have to complete your filing details. Go to Settings > Employer Filing Details. Fill in the required information and select the relevant options from the drop-down menus. Then click Save.

Please note: The UIF number is only required if you want to submit electronic monthly UIF declarations using SimplePay. The number required is not the number starting with a U issued by SARS, which is similar to the PAYE number.

The UIF number will not be on the SARS documentation as it is issued by the Department of Labour. You will, therefore, need to contact the Department of Labour if you do not have it. It will look similar to 1234567/8, but you should enter it without the “/”. Add a 0 in the front if your number is less than 8 digits long.

You must also fill in the PAYE number for electronic UIF declarations, if you have one.
