What is included in this update:

New System Runtime

  • We have updated the system runtime from 10.4.0 to 10.5.0.

RSA: MIBFA Personal Details Export File

We have received a request from MIBFA (Metal Industries Benefit Funds Administrators) to provide the personal information of all their members that are on the payroll system, each month.

This is to comply with the Financial Sector Conduct Authority (FSCA) and the Pension Funds Act. This is in addition to the existing Electronic Submission of Monthly Contributions that we already cater for.

This Industrial Council export is specific to RSA Companies.

Kenya: Tax Changes

Communication with regards to Kenya Tax Changes was emailed to you on 10 July 2023.

It has come to your attention that the tax changes introduced in the Finance Act No.4 of 2023 were suspended by the High Court of Kenya on the same day.

Therefore, the update to Release 6.0c no longer contains any Kenya changes.

If you have already followed the steps set out in the previous email correspondence, please restore the company backup that you made before transferring your employees, as it is no longer required.

We will keep you updated if the changes become applicable again

  • DRC: IPR Annual Declaration
