Submission of IR8S (Step-by-Step)

1) Click on the Payroll module to access the IR8S section in Talenox.

2) In the Payroll module, head into Payroll settings > IR8S.

3) In the IR8S generation page, choose the IR8S YA (Year of Assessment) at the top, which by default is usually the latest YA.

Click “Generate IR8S for 2022” to generate IR8S for the specific YA indicated.

Note: YA 2022 is for CPF contributions paid in 2021 (up to 31 Dec 2021) This is the same every year.

4) Next, you’ll have to go through a few steps of checking and verification before you make your IR8S submission to IRAS.

Click on “Edit Employee info for 2022” to verify employer information showing in IR8S forms (Step 1).

Ensure the employer information is accurate as this will be displayed on every employee’s IR8S form and it is a requirement for digital submission.

Double check the Employer Info and fill in the missing fields such as Authorised person and the details of the authorised person.

Note: Authorised person is the personnel approving the submission. They may or may not be the person preparing the submission.

5) Once Employer Info is updated, head back to the IR8S generation page and click on “View/Edit” to view the IR8S forms of each individual employee (Step 2).

When you are viewing each employee’s IR8S form, double check the details. If you have made changes, click on “Save”.

6) Once you have checked through all employee IR8S form details carefully, click on “View Overall Report” to make the submission to IRAS from Talenox (Step 3).

7) Followed by “Validate with IRAS” to validate the file formatting and contents of each employee's IR8S form.

You should validate your employees’ IR8S files first before submitting them.

There will be an error displayed if the form is incomplete or if you are required to do any amendments.

8) If there are no errors, click on “Submit to IRAS”.

You will be prompted to log in to IRAS with your SingPass to continue the IR8S submission process.

9) You will be brought to the authorisation page to allow Talenox AIS to connect to IRAS. Click on the “ALLOW” button.

10) Click on “Submit AIS to IRAS” again.

Note: Once you have successfully submitted the IR8S forms, there will be a notification to indicate that the IR8S submission is successful. You will get an email from IRAS within a few days. Thereafter, you can save the submitted file on your local drive.


Have a great tax submission season! 😎
