 2020-09-09 11:51 AM by

The SARS biannual EMP501 submission period runs from 14 September until 31 October.

Let us do your EMP501 submission for you via TeamViewer or AnyDesk to avoid errors or penalties. It usually takes no more than 1hr per company.

We support Sage Pastel Payroll, Sage VIP (Classic, Premier, Sage 200c) & Sage Business Cloud Payroll.

If you wish to attempt the submission yourself, please ensure that you are on the latest version of your payroll software:

  • Sage Pastel Payroll - Version 2021 Update 2 (available now)
  • Sage VIP (Classic / Premier / 200c) - Version 5.5a (available on 15 Sep)
  • Sage Business Cloud Payroll Professional - Version 5.5a (available now)

Do not generate the IRP5 certificates unless you're on the latest software version. The latest version contains important changes to SARS's transaction codes. In addition, do not do the EMP501 submission until after 14 September (15 September if you're using Sage VIP).
Please contact us if you would like to book a time for us to do your biannual SARS submission and/or update your software to the latest version.
