Instead of downloading a IR8S file and uploading it separately to myTaxPortal, you can submit IR8S with just a click of a button now!
To ensure you can use this feature to submit IR8S easily, you have to be under AIS. If you are not under AIS, you can simply apply for AIS over here: https://www.iras.gov.sg/irashome/Businesses/Employers/Auto-Inclusion-Scheme--AIS--for-Employment-Income/.
(Please note that AIS submission for current year is closed as it ended 31 Dec of the previous year. If you apply for AIS now, it will be for the following year's submission.)
To submit IR8S to IRAS, you can refer to the guide below or follow these steps:
Head over to Payroll > Payroll Settings > IR8S. Choose your Year of Assessment (YA) and click on "Generate IR8S for ... ", where "..." is your YA.
Update your Employer Info and double check all the IR8S forms to ensure that everything is in place.
Once that is done, click on "View Overall Report", followed by "Validate files" > "Submit to IRAS".
IRAS will get back instantaneously with an acknowledgement email to the authorised person and contact that is updated in myTaxPortal.
Have a great tax submission season! 😎
