Personal income tax (PIT) is the largest single source of the total tax revenue collection: SARS collected R389 billion in PIT during the past financial year. With Treasury targeting R1.43 trillion in gross tax revenue by 2018/19 (from R1.06 trillion today), it is clear that SARS will have to continue to drive compliance rigorously and relentlessly for individuals.

This seminar is focused exclusively on PIT, and is aimed at equipping you with the best practise methodology, skills and knowledge necessary to serve your clients in filing their personal income tax returns with confidence and integrity. It will cover the personal income tax fundamentals and update you on all the relevant changes to the tax legislation and rules, including the impact of the changes introduced by the retirement reform.

The 2016 personal income tax filing season is expected to open at the beginning of July. The first period provisional tax return relating to the 2017 tax year is due at the end of August 2016. Attending this seminar will ensure that you have the relevant information to prepare for this year’s tax filing season.
