The EA Form requires you to separate your Allowances into various categories. Some of the common categories are :
- Fees, Commissions and Bonuses
- Tips, Perquisites and Awards
- Tax Exempt Allowances
Some of these are difficult to calculate manually especially “Tax Exempt Allowances”.
In 2016 and earlier doing the E form was much simpler, but from 2016 onwards employers are directed to include all employees in the C.P 8D Form. This means keeping track of employess not paying PCB as well as maintaining record of resigned employees
This is one of the most difficult reports to produce because the new E form requires a lot of detailed data including VOLA, ESOS, BIK, TP1 Relief and Zakat. Also there is a need to keep track of new staff and resigned staff.
These 2 forms alone are worth buying a payroll software.
But, with Actpay this is very easy to do. Just a few clicks away.
Procedure to print EA form :
- Click Update EA Form, followed by Print EA Form.
As simple as that. All YTD data and Employee details will be automatically updated. If necessary, this information can also be edited manually.
Procedure to print E Form :
- Click “E Form Update/Total”. This will update the E Form data.
- Next “Click C.P. 8D Text File”. This will generate the LHDN approved text file for the E form.
- Upload this file directly to the LHDN website.
That is all. No calculations or print out needed!
You can also print the Excel version for checking purposes before uploading the text file.
