How do I use the ETI Validation Utility on Sage VIP?

Created on  | Last modified on 


This article explains how to use the ETI Validation Utility on Sage VIP Classic and Sage VIP Premier.


The ETI Validation Utility validates the ETI periods, sets, amounts as well as selected setup related issues of the current tax year. The utility will allow you to export the ETI data, perform review and corrections where required, and import the newly corrected information into the payroll.


During the 2020 RSA mid-year reconciliation period, it came to our attention that some customer’s Employment Tax Incentive (ETI) company setups are incorrect resulting in incorrect amounts utilised. A new in-system tool is now available for Sage VIP Classic and Sage VIP Premier customers to validate the ETI setup.
