Introduction to Electronic Filing System

Electronic Filing System has the following seven functions:

a)   Account management (only applies to master account)
b)   Enquiry function
c)   Reporting function
d)   Download function
e)   Function for receiving messages and sending attachments
f)   Check account information
g)   Service Application
 

 a)  Account Management (only applies to master account)

  • The master account can use this function to set up and manage sub-account(s) him/herself and grant the system functions that can be used, including the enquiry function, reporting function, download function, the function of receiving message and sending attachment, and apply for services.
  • The master account can use this function in December of each year to “Confirm to Renew” the sub-account(s).
     

b)  Enquiry Function

  • Users can view and download information such as Payment Advice and Employee List:
    I.    Electronic Filing – Contributions of the Obligatory System (long-term employee)/(casual worker): (Reporting Version), (Payment List of Local Employees) and (Record of Payment)
    II.   Electronic Filing – Employment Fee for Non-resident Worker: (List of Non-resident Workers Required to Pay Employment Fee) and (Record of Payment)
    III. (Employer’s registration information)
    IV. (Local Employee List – Contributions of the Obligatory System (Long-term Employee) ) (available only in the first quarter)
      

c)  Reporting Function

  • Users can use this function to report staff change of local employees. At the same time, they can enroll employees who have never enrolled as beneficiaries of the FSS. Employers of specified industries can also use this function to upload the electronic file of the declaration to the FSS.
  • Users can report the employment information of employees using three reporting methods: (Basic Input), (Batch Input), (Import Data with Excel).
    I.    (Basic Input): Enter each employee’s employment information individually
    II.  (Batch Input): Enter the employees' employment information in batches, up to 50 employees’ data at a time
    III. (Import Data with Excel): Create a spreadsheet containing employee data in “Excel template” format and import data to the Electronic Filing System
  • Between the 21st day of the month preceding the contribution month and the 21st day of the contribution month, the system will provide the “Data Sheet for Previewing all Employee Data” (Excel format) based on the employer’s original employee data and the data that has been “saved” during the quarter. Users can preview the number and amount of contributions payable for long-term employees and the employment information of long-term employees for the quarter (applies only to long-term employees).
  • Both the master account and the sub-account can “save” the employment information of employees that have been input and the system will then generate a “Reporting Version”.
  • Only the master account has the function for “submitting” the employee data to the FSS. The master account is considered to have completed all the reporting procedures for the quarter (long-term employee)/the month (casual worker) only when he/she has “submitted” the employee data.
  • The master account can “submit” the data only once per quarter (long-term employee)/per month (casual worker).
     

d)  Download Function

  • Users may view and download Payment Advice in the contribution month, and make their payment through dedicated channels. Viewable and downloadable information includes:
    I.    Electronic Filing – Contributions of the Obligatory System (long-term employee)/(casual worker): (Contribution Payment Advice), (Local Employee List).
    II.   Electronic Filing – Employment Fee for Non-resident Workers: (Payment Advice), (List of Non-resident Workers Required to Pay Employment Fee)

  • Withdrawal of Submitted Data about Long-term Employees/Casual Workers
    In order to complete the reporting procedures, if a master account finds that the submitted information has to be amended after he/she has submitted the data, he/she can use this function to withdraw the “submitted” information and to “submit” again the employment information of all employees after the amendment. The master account can only withdraw the submitted data once per quarter (long-term employee)/per month (casual worker).
