Annual Employer Reconciliation Season for 2013 now closed

The annual PAYE Reconciliation season ended on 31 May 2013. Employers had to submit their PAYE, UIF and SDL Reconciliations as well as employee tax certificates for the year 01 March 2012 to 28 February 2013 during April/May 2013.

Did you make the deadline? Did you experience any problems during this year’s reconciliation? How did the e@syFile application and eFiling service perform this year? Were you satisfied with the level of service and quality of communication provided by SARS?

Share your experience with us and post any feedback, complaints or suggestions we can pass on to SARS that might help with improving the next submission process in September/October 2013.

    We experienced a definite improvement on the stability of e@syfile this year, so found the journey from beginning to end a little less daunting than in the past.

    This was the first year that I could run smoothly through the submission – didn’t have to phone Sars or Pastel.
    Just used the info on Sars website. ( the steps to reconcile etc)
    Well done Sars and Pastel as importing was also smooth.

    We haven’t been able to install EasyFile version 6.3.0 Although the software downloads we cannot install it as the following error message comes up “The application could not be installed because the installer file is damaged. Try obtaining a new installer file from the application author”.
    we tried on 3 different machines at 2 different locations and still no success. SARS unable to help. Has anybody else come across the same problem ?
