CFR Services Online - Employers & FSS Services

​Employers can honour all their tax obligations form the comfort of home or office. Monthly payments of Social Security Contributions and FSS Tax withheld from their employees’ salaries and wages can be effected together with the on line filing of (FS5). The end of year employees’ statements of earnings (FS3’s and FS7) can also be filed on line either through a web form or through a spreadsheet application from the employer’s desktop.

The Commissioner for Revenue encourages employers to use the on-line service to benefit from the following advantages:

•No need to call personally at the department
•On-Line validations will ensure that the data submitted is error free
•Correct submissions are acknowledged on-line
•Improved security and confidentiality in the submission of the information to the Commissioner for Revenue
•Payments are always available for viewing not just after the submission of the FS7 and FS3 data
•Employers may test the FSS files against all validations through their authenticated access
•The FSS e-filing spreadsheet acts as an interface between the payroll and the Commissioner for Revenue website, where the   employer is able to:


        ◦Log on securely (through the use of the digital certificate) to the Commissioner for Revenue website
        ◦Personalize the spreadsheet with the registration information (PE Number, Name, address etc)
        ◦Load the FSS and SSC files generated by the payroll for viewing and possibly modification of the data. If a
          PE Number has more than one file these can be merged using the spreadsheet.

        ◦Receive the appropriate feedback (Errors, acknowledgements, payments information) back into the)
