You can submit the following IRAS forms through Yuvo:

  • IR8A - for all employees

  • IR8S - if you have made excess CPF contributions on your employees' wages and/or have claimed or will claim refund on excess CPF contributions.

  • Appendix 8A - for employees who were provided with benefits-in-kind

  • Appendix 8B - for employees who derived gains or profits from Employee Stock Option (ESOP) Plans or other forms of Employee Share Ownership (ESOW) Plans

Go to Payroll > IRAS > Click on "Create tax filing for (year)" > Select "Original File".

The Amendment File option is only for when you need to make changes to forms that you have already submitted.

Select the employees you want to file for.

A new draft entry will be created. Click on the 3 dots and then click on "Edit".

Step 1: Organisation Details

The information will be populated from your existing data by default. You can also edit any information by clicking on the "Edit" button.

Once you have verified that the information is correct, click on "Next".

Step 2: IR8A

Separate IR8A forms for each employee will be generated, and certain information will be populated from existing employee data, including payroll.

Note: You will need to configure the Tax Type for Pay Types in payroll for them to be automatically populated in the IR8A form.

Learn more about configuring the Tax Type for Pay Types here.

You can view each form and make any necessary edits by clicking on the 3 dots and then click on "Edit".

This will bring you to the employee's individual IR8A form, and you can click on "Edit" in the top right.

Once you have confirmed that all of the information is correct, scroll down to the bottom of the form and click on "Save".

If there are any errors, you will be taken to the relevant section of the form and it will be highlighted in red.

For example:

If there are no errors, once you click on "Save" you'll be able to move on to the next step by clicking on "Next".

If you only need to submit the IR8A, skip to: Validating the IRAS forms

Step 3: IR8S

You only need to fill out an IR8S form if you have made excess CPF contributions on your employees' wages and/or have claimed or will claim refund on excess CPF contributions.

Note: You can skip this step if it is not applicable by clicking on "Next".

There are two ways to create an IR8S form:

  • From the IR8S step, by clicking on "Edit Employees"

  • From the IR8A form, by clicking on "Create form IR8S" under item number 7

Once the entry is created, you can edit the form by clicking on the 3 dots and then click on "Edit IR8S".

Since the information from the IR8S is automatically linked to the IR8A, there is also an option to edit the IR8A.

This will bring you to the employee's individual IR8S form, and you can click on "Edit" in the top right.

Once you have confirmed that all of the information is correct, scroll down to the bottom of the form and click on "Save".

The relevant information will be automatically populated in the IR8A form as well.

Once all the necessary information has been edited, click on "Next".


Step 4: Appendix 8A

You only need to fill out an Appendix 8A form for employees who were provided with benefits-in-kind.

Note: You can skip this step if it is not applicable by clicking on "Next".

There are two ways to create an Appendix 8A form:

  • From the Appendix 8A step, by clicking on "Edit Employees"

  • From the IR8A form, by clicking on "Create form A8A" under item number 9

Once the entry is created, you can edit the form by clicking on the 3 dots and then click on "Edit A8A".

Since the information from the Appendix 8A is automatically linked to the IR8A, there is also an option to edit the IR8A.

This will bring you to the employee's individual Appendix 8A form, and you can click on "Edit" in the top right.

Once you have confirmed that all of the information is correct, scroll down to the bottom of the form and click on "Save".

The relevant information will be automatically populated in the IR8A form as well.

Once all the necessary information has been edited, click on "Next".


Step 5: Appendix 8B

You only need to fill out an Appendix 8B form for employees who derived gains or profits from Employee Stock Option (ESOP) Plans or other forms of Employee Share Ownership (ESOW) Plans.

Note: You can skip this step if it is not applicable by clicking on "Next".

There are two ways to create an Appendix 8B form:

  • From the Appendix 8B step, by clicking on "Edit Employees"

  • From the IR8A form, by clicking on "Create form A8B" under item number 8

Once the entry is created, you can edit the form by clicking on the 3 dots and then click on "Edit A8B".

Since the information from the Appendix 8B is automatically linked to the IR8A, there is also an option to edit the IR8A.

This will bring you to the employee's individual Appendix 8B form, and you can click on "Edit" in the top right.

Once you have confirmed that all of the information is correct, scroll down to the bottom of the form and click on "Save".

The relevant information will be automatically populated in the IR8A form as well.

Once all the necessary information has been edited, click on "Next".

Validating the IRAS forms

Once the forms have been saved and edited, you can click on the "Validate" button to have the information validated by IRAS.

Note: You can perform validation at every step, or at the very end in the summary step (it will automatically prompt you to validate). You will not be able to submit the forms without validating first.

You will need to log in using your CorpPass. Click on "Authorize via CorpPass" to be taken to the login page.

Note: The login will be valid for 30 minutes, after which you will be prompted to log in again.

Once you have logged in, select the appropriate UEN/Entity ID. You will then be taken to a page called "Request for Permission". Click on "Allow".

You will be brought back to the Yuvo platform and any errors or warnings will be shown.

Errors vs. warnings

If there are errors, you will see a red exclamation mark.

Errors will be shown in red. For example:

If there are warnings, you will see a yellow exclamation mark.

Warnings will be shown in yellow, for example:

You can still submit forms that have warnings (see below), but any errors need to be corrected before you will be allowed to submit.

Step 6: Submitting forms once validated

If the forms have been validated, the status will be shown beside the "Summary" header.

If there are no errors, you can go ahead and click on "Submit To IRAS" at the bottom of the summary page.

If there are any warnings and you still wish to proceed, you will be prompted to tick the "bypass warning" checkbox before submitting.

Once it has been submitted, the status will be shown beside the "Summary" header.
