Reminder to update tax rates for new tax year
If you have not already done so, please install the latest tax rates for RSA that came into effect from 1 March 2017 as soon as possible. The tax rates have increased and once installed will recalculate any tax shortfalls backdated to 1 March and the employee’s take home pay will be less, and no doubt cause grumpy staff. The sooner the new rates are loaded the less negative impact it will have on staff shortfalls.
