EMP501 – PAYE recon

The deadline to submit the first PAYE recons for the 2021 financial year is 31 October 2020.

The EMP501 is where employers have to reconcile the employee tax they deducted from employees to the amounts that were paid over to SARS. With this PAYE recon, IRP5’s are generated, but not handed over to the employees.
