OVERVIEW:

In his 2013 Budget Speech the Minister of Finance made clear Treasury's intention to implement changes to the legislation relating to the taxation of Trusts to curb the use of Trusts for tax planning. In terms of the 2012-2017 SARS Compliance Programme high net worth individuals and trusts remain high on the list of specific areas of focus for SARS. SARS' increased information gathering capacity in terms of the Tax Administration Act and the poor administration of trusts has left taxpayers at risk as trust transactions thought to be tax efficient can be set aside by SARS and new tax liabilities determined, with all the commensurate penalties and interest.

Please join us as we discuss the proposed legislative changes, the greatest areas of risk and what taxpayers can do to prepare for an investigation by SARS.
