New FS5 Form
Employers in Malta are to take note that a new FS5 Form (Payer’s Monthly Payment Advice) has been issued this month by the FSS Section of the Inland Revenue Department. The FS5 has been amended to include a new row (D5a) to cover employers’ contributions towards the monthly Maternity Fund Contributions calculated on each employee. New FS3s and FS7s are to be issued shortly and shall be available for download on this website in due course.
FS5 Forms are utilised by Employers to declare their employees’ wages, salaries and fringe benefits to the Inland Revenue Department monthly. The form is also utilised to pay employees’ tax and employers’ and employees’ share of social security contributions (SSC) and maternity fund contributions. The Form with the applicable payment is to reach the Inland Revenue Department by the last working day of the month following that during which the employer has made payments of emoluments. Late submission of the FS5 Form attracts penalties.
