Practical tips for the upcoming PAYE EMP501 submission

Important things to remember for the PAYE EMP501 201902 submission starting 17 April 2019 – 31 May 2019

It is that time of the year again when employers need to file their annual EMP501 returns with SARS and issue their employees with their IRP5 certificates.  In light of the many queries we receive from clients at this time, we thought that you would benefit from the tips below when preparing and submitting your company’s EMP501 return.

Companies with less than 20 employees will be able to process the EMP501 submission through SARS E-filing. 

If your company has more than 20 employees, rather complete the submission via easyFile.

The best time to submit will be from 1 May 2019 to 15 May 2019. Do not leave it for the last week.

We hope these tips guide you with your company's EMP501 return.
