If I am a sole proprietor and am registered for PAYE/UIF, as I employ one individual, and have paid PAYE for myself during the 2015-2016 tax year so that I don't get hit with a big Income Tax bill at the end (this is over and above the two provisional tax amounts I have paid) - how do I declare this tax paid on an IRP5? Do I declare an income amount even though my accounts have not been finalized or do I leave the income amount blank but complete the 4102 PAYE code on Easyfile?
No, as I said I am a sole proprietor registered for PAYE as I employ one person.

You actually should only be paying PAYE for your employee. Since you are a sole proprietor, you are not an employee yourself and should be paying provisional tax (and not PAYE) on your earnings. Since you have paid tax for yourself, you could declare the income amount on which the tax has been paid.
