IRAS Opening Balance


JustLogin gives you the option to conveniently generate your employees' tax forms, and directly submit them to IRAS. The IRAS Opening Balance can be used on scenarios below:

  • to cover the payroll months prior to your first JustLogin payrun
  • when a Tax Code was missed out or incorrectly set for a pay element
  • any additional monetary amounts given to a staff that were not included in the payrun
  • Director's Fee or any other compensation which doesn't require payroll processing


    • Any changes to the Opening Balance will not reflect in any Payroll report.
    • The IR8A Form data will be comprised of the values entered in the Opening Balance plus any approved payruns.
    • To cover previous months' payroll, get the sum of the wages by tax code and enter the total amount under the corresponding section.
    • Any deductions can be entered as a negative number.
