Preparing for a SARS Audit Presented By Ronel de Kock
Taxpayers are well aware by now of the new income tax returns for companies (ITR14’s) issued by SARS and which became effective as of 4 May 2013. SARS sees the new forms as a "modernisation of corporate income tax, aimed at improving efficiency and compliance”. To assist in ensuring increased compliance by taxpayers SARS has also made amendments to the IT14SD form. The IT14SD form is a supplementary declaration in which taxpayer’s are required to reconcile Income Tax, Value-Added Tax, Pay-as-you-earn (PAYE) and customs declarations after the initial submission of the ITR14.
In this seminar we will not focus on the mechanics of the submission of the returns, but instead on the content of each of the returns. The aim of this will be to assist taxpayers in understanding new terminology and concepts within the returns from a tax perspective in order to complete returns correctly. We will also address how SARS may use certain information disclosed by taxpayers to assess their risk profiles and we will also be covering other common areas that taxpayers battle to reconcile.
