Guide to Generate/Submit/Release the IR56B


The IR56B form needs to be submitted to IRD and this can be generated within JustLogin. IR56B generated in your JustLogin system contains your employees approved payrun in the system as well as the taxes paid. To generate, please follow the steps below.



Step 1: Log in to the account

Step 2: Click on mceclip0.png

Step 3: Go to mceclip1.png

Step 4: Look for themceclip2.png tab at the top. This is the page where the IR56 form can be generated and used for submission.


Step 5: On the Tax Year field, this will show the Year of Assessment by default.


Step 6: On the Form/Export Type section, please choose the appropriate form you would like to generate:


  • IR56B Form – this is a PDF copy of the IR56B form that can be released to the employees so they will have a copy of their tax document (To release the IR56B Form, please scroll to the bottom of this page for the guide)
  • IR56B Export (XML) – this is the file that you can generate for submission

Step 7: The ERN will already be filled out for you based on your company’s registration number in the system (This can be found on the Configuration page of the Payroll module)


Step 8: The Employee Selection Mode is where you can indicate how you want to choose the users who will be included in the file generation


  • All active and deactivated employees for the selected tax year – this will include ALL employees who worked within the tax year.
  • All current employees, plus any resigned/terminated employees from the listing box below – this option will allow you to choose who you would like to be included in the file generation from the list of active and deactivated employees. To do so, click on themceclip9.png icon and from the pop-up window, put a tick beside the name/s of the staff you would like to include, and click on mceclip10.png
  • All current employees excluding selected employees from the listing box below – you can choose this option if you are generating the file for most of your users except for a few. To do so, click on themceclip11.png icon and from the pop-up window, put a tick beside the name/s of the staff you would like to be excluded, and click on mceclip12.png
  • Include only the selected employees from the listing box below – this will allow you to filter those you want to be included in the file generation in the list of active employees. To do so, click on themceclip13.png icon and from the pop-up window, put a tick beside the name/s of the staff you would like to be included, and click on mceclip14.png


Step 9: The field for the Name of Employer is greyed out and will automatically be filled in based on the information in the Configuration page of the Payroll module



Step 10: For the next two fields, Name of Authorised Person and Designation, please input the name and designation of the person authorized to generate the file. Ideally, this should be the same person submitting the BIR56A



Step 11: The Batch Indicator will already be set to “original” as the default


Step 12: The Batch Date field, by default, will show the current date


Step 13: Once you have completed all the fields, click on themceclip21.pngbutton.
