Subject: Develop the EMS "PayDay Reporting" file for Fiji

Hi Alvis, as per FRCS requirement we need to create a new EMS file with pay day reporting values. 

Clients should have the below options for EMS submission from 2020.

  1. Generate the Pay Day Manaual EMS file with  the pre calculated  tax values. OR
  2. Submit the "PayDay" reporting file with the lump values for PAYE computation by FRCS. 
Additional information provided by FRCS regarding uploads prior to 2020. 
  1. Payroll users needs to continue lodging Monthly files in notepad until PAYE goes live in TPOS for the period of 2013 January -2019 December.  No changes required in LINKSOFT as the system already has this feature.
  2. After PAYE goes live in TPOS (FRCS Online Reporting System) , any amendments or new lodgments during the period of 2015 January- 2019 December will be carried out using the Excel Monthly File format as per the Pre ECAL and Post ECAL specification
  3. Payday will commence on 01st January 2020 as per the 2019/2020 Budget. These report loading will start from the 01st week of February just to allow ample time to Payroll vendors for developing and updating the changes to their clients Payroll software.

Please find attach the file format and sample for payday reporting
