The [email protected] application must always be on the latest version (the application will advise you that a new version is available if connected to the internet), in order to submit your reconciliation to SARS. We recommend downloading the software and installing the new version from the install file, rather than using the automated download/update function.
All this should be done before importing your payroll files and submitting your EMP501 declaration to SARS.
For the 2020/2021 Interim Reconciliation, the payroll release compatible with SARS [email protected] 7.0.7 is Release 5.5a, which is scheduled for release on 15/09/2020. Any imports from older versions might be rejected on import, due to version incompatibility.
