Navigating your way around your IRP5

IRP5 documents come in all sorts of formats. Luckily there are only a handful of companies that produce IRP5s, so most of them follow a similar format.

Click on the format that matches your IRP5 below and we will show you where to find all the amounts you need for your tax return.

OPTION 1: SARS format





Didn't find your IRP5?

There is a small chance that your IRP5 does not match the formats above. If it doesn't, please contact our helpdesk and we will add it to the list!

You might also be looking at your payslip, and not your IRP5. Your payslip is what your employer sends you every month, and is NOT the document you need for completing your tax return. If the document in front of you says things like Pay Date and Nett Pay, but not Employee Income Tax Certificate and IRP5/IT3(a), then it is likely that you are viewing a payslip. You will need to ask your employer for your IRP5.
