6/27/2019

The annual changes for the year 2020 have been made to the Incomes Register's technical documents. The changes will be effective from 1 January 2020, but they are published six months in advance. The annual changes aim to improve the logic of reporting and the quality of the data saved in the Incomes Register. Some of the annual changes have been made based on the change requests of the Incomes Register's stakeholders.

Processing rules have been added to the schema descriptions of earnings payment reports and employer's separate reports. The new processing rules apply to, for example, identifiers and the reporting of dates. In addition, a new data item has been added to the schema descriptions of the earnings payment report: Tax at source from the recovered amount (TaxAtSource).
