Dust off your EMP501s, it’s that time of year once again. The employer filing season opened officially on 1 September, with the deadline on 30 October 2015. You will be reconciling figures for the period 1 March 2015 to 31 August 2015. Please view our online help on this subject to ensure that everything goes smoothly.
It’s worth noting this time around that both version 6.6.2 and version 6.6.3 of SARS e@syFile can be used to submit your reconciliation statement (EMP501). If you’re using version 6.6.2 you’ll see a popup message asking you if you would like to update to version 6.6.3. Clicking ‘Yes’ will update e@syFile to the latest version, requiring a full back-up and restoring of data, while clicking ‘no’ will allow you to continue using the older version.
As always, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
