As the Trial Exercise is a simulation of the preparation and submission process, no income information will be sent to IRAS.
To complete the Trial Exercise,
1. Use the trial versions of the AIS software to prepare your trial files,
2. Generate a Trial Code before you exit the software, and
3. Log into myTax Portal to submit the Trial Code to IRAS.
A “Trial Completed” page will be displayed upon successful submission of the Trial Code.
Note: You need to be authorised via the e-Services Authorisation System (EASY) for e-Submission of Employment Income before you can submit the Trial Code at myTax Portal. Find out more on the authorisation process here.
Employers using Provident and Tax (PAT) system
New AIS employers who have chosen to submit via the PAT system will have to email to email@example.com to inform us of your choice.
CrimsonLogic will send a notification to inform you of the Trial Exercise details after you have registered an account with them for the submission of employment income information to IRAS.
