New EMP201 return – effective 1 March 2010
The new automated form was introduced to reduce the labour-intensive processing of the monthly declaration and reduce errors upon completion. The new form will also allow employers to adjust previous declarations and reallocate credit amounts to other periods.
The unique 19 digit payment reference number must be used when changing declarations or lodging queries for that period.
New changes include full contact details of the person completing the return and only amounts due to SARS. Stating remuneration or the number of employees on which it is based, have been deleted on the new format.
The new EMP201 return can only be obtained from your local SARS branch-office or via SARS E-filing (no posting of EMP201 returns by SARS).
