What do we need?

Let's make sure the following are done before we move onto IR8A reporting:

  • Tax information of employer is updated (Master Data --> Organization)
  • Employees' personal information is updated (Staff --> Applicant)
  • Payrolls from last January to December are done and posted (Payroll --> Payroll Batch)
  • Pay types are correctly configured on whether it is taxable with proper tax category (Master Data --> Job Order Template)
    ➡️ Details setting can take a look at Get Ready for using Taxation

Steps to preparing IR8A for submission

  • Go to Taxation --> IR8A
  • Click "Add New"
    • Specify the company and tax period
    • Confirm. You now have a blank IR8A batch
