How to submit employment income records to IRAS electronically

There are various ways for employers to submit employment income records to IRAS. However, with Swingvy, save your time by doing it online. 

Swingvy tip:
1. You do not need to import your past payroll data for IR8A
2. When the form is generated, editing is possible
3. Forms are generated once during submission
4. Any amendment after the submission is not possible in Swingvy

Step 1 - Create tax filling by selecting the employee

To begin, select the employee that eligible for IR8A submission. 


Step 2 - Update your organisation info

In this section, 3 columns are needed:

  • Determine your IRAS registration types
  • Determine your organisation registration number 

If you are unsure about your organisation registration number, here is how you can get yours:

  1. Your GST Registration Number
    This is the number you have to print on your invoices, credit notes and receipts.
  2. Your Effective Date of GST Registration
    This is the date when you have to start charging and collecting GST on your taxable supplies. You must not charge or collect GST before the effective date of your GST registration.

You may also retrieve a copy of the notification letter by logging in to myTax Portal (select “Notices/Letters”)

  • Update PIC information


Step 3 - Update your employees’ IR8A 


Step 4 - Validate your IRAS


Swingvy tip: 
Kindly make sure that your company are registered for submission via (Auto-Inclusion Scheme) AIS before proceeding with the submission in Swingvy. The registration can be done before 31st December every year for the next year submission. Learn more on the registration here.

At the Validate and Submit step, you can download the IR8A form for each employee. In the event that AIS submission is not registered, you can submit the IR8A form by logging into the IRAS portal.

Swingvy tip:
1. The submission button is only available when the validation is error-free
2. The error message is validated by the IRAS website. Please check your error message and update accordingly


Step 5 - Submit to  IRAS

This year, there is a new security authentication before submitting to IRAS. 

Step i - After clicking the submit button, there will be a message box to login with CorpPass



Step ii: Once you login to CorpPass, you need to provide permission. Only after the permission is granted Swingvy is able to submit the tax filings.
