The IRAS Settings can be accessed through Payroll Settings > Statutory Reporting Settings (under the Business Settings heading).
The Statutory Reporting Settings page contains a tab for the CPF Settings and a tab for the IRAS Settings. Click here to view more information on the IRAS Settings.
The IRAS settings tab allows businesses to select whether you will be lodging the Annual Income Information electronically via the AIS (Auto Inclusion Scheme), or manually.
N.B. It is mandatory for businesses with more than 6 employees to lodge electronically via the AIS.
The 2 lodgement options are:
- Electronically via the AIS
- Manual upload/forms
Electronically via the AIS
To lodge electronically via the Auto Inclusion Scheme (AIS) businesses must be registered and the appropriate digital services must be enabled within CorpPass. Any authorised users must be configured correctly for the submission to be successful.
This option also includes a check box for if you are a tax agent lodging on behalf of your business client.
If you are lodging the Annual Income Information electronically, you perform this task via the IR8A lodgement report.
If you are lodging the Annual Income Information manually, select the manual/upload forms option. You then go to the IR8A report in order to generate/publish the forms for the employees. The employees then upload the income data to their tax portal.
The option to generate forms will not be available if you have enabled electronic submission.
