    Although the PAYE Interim Submission period is now officially closed, employers who have not yet submitted their PAYE reconciliations for the period 01 March 2011 to 31 August 2011 are urged to do so as soon as possible as SARS will be raising penalties for not submitting or submitting inaccurate returns.
    Manual submission forms are no longer available at SARS branches but can be requested from your local SARS branch. Electronic submissions can still be done on e@syFile.
