Processing of paper forms sent to the Incomes Register back on schedule

3/14/2019

About 10,000 paper forms were sent to the Incomes Register during the first months of the year. The processing of the reports was slowed down due to heavy workload in January and February, but now all paper forms are being handled and the processing is back on schedule.

Reporting to the Incomes Register on a paper form

The details of paid wages are reported to the Incomes Register electronically. A paper form can be used for reporting only in special circumstances.

If an employer reports on a paper form, the earnings payment report must be submitted on the eighth calendar day following the payment day at the latest. If the employer's separate report is given on a paper form, the report must be submitted on the eighth day of the calendar month following the payment month at the latest. Paper forms must arrive at the Incomes Register Unit by the due date.

Forms released by the Incomes Register are used for reporting. Attachments cannot be sent with the form.

Paper forms are read optically and the correctly filled-in reports are saved in the Incomes Register. A paper form will be processed within three days of its arrival to the Incomes Register Unit.

Incomplete reports will be rejected

If the report is filled in incompletely or incorrectly, it will be rejected and it will not be saved in the Incomes Register. The Incomes Register will send a letter concerning the rejection of the report. The letter will specify which data are incomplete. None of the information on a rejected report will be saved in the Incomes Register and the employer must submit the entire report again.
