Submission of Employment Income for YA 2023 via AIS API Service

In line with the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore’s (IRAS) initiative to improve tax submission process, payroll vendors are encouraged to provide API (Application Programming Interface) for direct submissions of employees’ income tax. Effective from Year of Assessment (YA) 2023, employers are strongly encouraged to use API-enabled payroll software, as the Auto-inclusion Scheme’s (AIS) offline application will be decommissioned by end 2022.

Available Modes of Submission for Employment Income via Payroll System

Up to Year of Assessment (YA) 2022: Auto-inclusion Scheme (AIS)

Employers have to prepare the employment income information in IRAS’s format through a payroll software, validate through AIS offline application process, and submit it to IRAS electronically. Employers who do not use payroll software may use the AIS offline application to prepare and submit employment income information to IRAS.

Effective from Year of Assessment (YA) 2023, AIS Offline Application / the Validation and Submission Application will no longer be available.
