Posted on 10 Jan 2019 in Business by QuickHR with 0 Comments

As early as possible, it is good to be reminded on the Filing for Employee Earnings. These are the forms IR8A, Appendix 8A, Appendix 8B, and IR8S whichever is applicable. Employers are required by law to accomplish such forms as stated under the S68(2) of the Income Tax Act on the 1st of March.

As guidance, here are important references in relation to the forms that need to be completed before the 1st of March this year.

Form IR8A for YA 2019

This form must be accomplished for all employees that are :

  • Full-time resident employee
  • Part-time resident employee
  • Non-resident employee
  • Company Director even if non-resident
  • Board members who receive Board Member Fees
  • Pensioner
  • For an employee who left the organization but is in receipt of income in 2018 such as stock option gains, etc.

For employees who are based overseas who are not incidental to employment in the Form IR8A, stating the amount of income is not compulsory. Employers who are in participation in AIS are only required to select "Income from Overseas Employment" under Exempt/Remission Income Indicator portion.

QuickHR is IRAS Approved and the forms all use the required format for the Year of Assessment which can be submitted to Application Programming Interface (API) directly. Such innovation significantly contributes to fast, efficient and convenient processing.
