Travel claim against allowance

Some employers are required to re-submit their Employer Annual Reconciliation Declaration (EMP501) and Employees’ Tax Certificates [IRP5/IT3(a)s] documents to SARS. This is the result of data that was omitted by the system when employers submitted their documents to SARS.

The resubmission of these documents will have an effect on some taxpayers.
 
Who is affected?
 
Taxpayers whose IRP5/IT3(a)s tax certificates received from their employers reflect codes 3701, 3702, 3802 and/or 3816).
 
What should I do?

Scenario 1: Taxpayers who have not yet submitted their 2017 ITR12s should take the following steps:
  • Affected taxpayers should wait at least 24 hours after the successful re-submission of their IRP5/IT3(a)s by their employer before submitting their ITR12s.

  • Once the employer’s re-submission is completed successfully and the taxpayers request their ITR12s via eFiling, the Refresh IRP5/IT3(a) data option on eFiling should be used to ensure that the latest version of the IRP5/IT3(a)s are pre-populated on their ITR12s.

  • Taxpayers may then complete and submit their 2017 ITR12s via eFiling or at a SARS Branch.

Scenario 2: Taxpayers who have already submitted their 2017 ITR12s prior to your resubmission should take the following steps: 

It must be noted that the adding of code 4582 to your IRP5/IT3(a) certificate will not impact all assessments already processed. The inclusion of code 4582 may therefore not necessarily result in a change in the tax liability.
 
  • Affected taxpayers should wait at least 24 hours after the successful re-submission of the IRP5/IT3(a)s by their employer before taking any action.

  • Once your employer’s re-submission is completed successfully –
    • taxpayers who submitted 2017 ITR12s via eFiling should submit a Request for Correction via eFiling

    • in certain circumstances, eFiling  will not allow taxpayers to submit a Request for Correction – in such cases taxpayers should submit a Notice of Objection (NOO) together with relevant material

    • taxpayers who submitted 2017 ITR12s at a SARS branch should again approach a SARS branch for assistance to consider submitting a Request for Correction or Notice of Objection (NOO) where applicable.
