    EMP201 first filing after registration

    Hi

    I have to file the first EMP201 on SARS efiling for my client. They started in October 2013. I only received the PAYE number today (they also applied a bit late). Do I have to start filing from period 201310 and pay penalties and interest? Or is there a way of filing all 3 returns in Jan? Or do I just pay over the amounts excl. penalties and SARS waves it?

    Thanks

    Miriam

    Hi
    Interesting question . Suppose you have to file each period on its own and SARS will impose penalty for which you can asked to waive
    Even if you submit all amounts in Jan 2014 , you will have a problem when you do declaration with EMP501 with correct periods where they also impose interest
    Perhaps phone SARS before the time as PAYE number only issued now but suppose that is not excuse for applying late

    Hi
    I would file EMP 201's for the 3 periods just complete it. After this you object to the penalties and interest, as there are valid grounds to do so.

    Please note however, a request for remission must first be lodged prior to the objection.

    In my mind SARS will still want their tax here, and they will get it just a little late for a good reason. Just file returns as a start and let the rest follow.
