Some Important Information From Comments
1. How can I get my U-filing login unblocked so that, I can register new employees and submit my monthly declarations. I have phoned 0800 030 007 as instructed and nobody seems to know what is going on. I have been given various phone numbers from them to get this sorted out but there is no response.
2. I am trying to register on the webpage, but not getting anywhere. It keeps telling me to input details as they appear in ID, which I am doing and still nothing. I need urgent assistance.
3. The system to register for uFiling online does NOT work. Have been trying for days, but still unable to register. Is someone going to fix the website soon?
