Registration of ALL employees for Income Tax purposes
With the mid-year August 2010 EMP501 submission, SARS will review all employees without a valid SARS income tax number and register them on their system (where possible). All demographic information for each employee must be supplied to SARS for this purpose.
Any employee not included in the above mid-year EMP501 submission would have to be registered individually. After 1 September 2010, the E@syfile program released a facility to register these employees on-line via an “ITREG” option – please ensure the latest E@syfile version is used for this purpose.
Manual income tax registrations (IT77 applications) are only required in exceptional cases where SARS cannot automatically register certain employees.
