Amendment of Appendix 8A (Step-by-Step)
Take a look below to help you better understand the Appendix 8A amendment process through Talenox:
1) To start the amendment process, click on "Make amendment" under 'Optional' step in your Appendix 8A page.
2) After you have clicked “Make amendment” in the previous screen, choose the employee(s) that you would like to make the amendment for by checking the box. Once you have made your selection, click on "Continue".
3) As you head over to the specific employee’s Appendix 8A to make amendments, you will just need to overwrite the previous value with the new one. To continue, click "View/Edit".
Note: If an amendment to the employee particulars fields (e.g. birthdate, residential address) needs to be made, the submission will fail and according to IRAS, the amendment file is not required. More on this can be referred from here.
4) Once you have updated the values, remember to click "Save" to save your changes.
Amendments can only be submitted after changes are saved in the amendment form directly. Original submitted values will show below the respective fields in red for reference when making amendment edits to values.
5) Upon saving the changes, select the employee(s) affected on their checkbox, and click "View Overall Report" to submit your amendments.
6) Click "Validate with IRAS" to validate the amendments. If there are errors, rectify your amendments and once you have successfully validated the Appendix 8A amendment files, click "Submit to IRAS" to submit the amendments.
IRAS will take around 1 - 2 weeks to check through the file and get back with an acknowledgement email to the authorised person and contact that is in myTaxPortal. You can also check your status over at myTaxPortal.
If the submission is still not reflected in myTaxPortal, you can contact IRAS directly to clarify. 👍
Have a great tax submission season! 😁
