We got retrenched in Sept 2015 after not being paid two months salaries. Employer claimed liquidation, but no details up to now. We do not have IRP5 because the sub-contracted audit/payroll company has not been paid for such service, and they are refusing to provide us with IRP5 due to non-payment by the employer that retrenched us. How do we go about solving this problem? We need IRP5 for the 2015/2016 tax season submission.

You can go to the police station and Swear an affidavit stating the reasons why you are unable to provide SARS with an IRP5.

You can take this to SARS together with payslips/bank statements which would reflect your monthly earnings and this should be sufficient for SARS to assist you to file your tax return for 2015/2016.
