Diploma in Payroll Taxes

Presented by the International Institute for Tax and Finance

Starts on the 12 March 2013


The International Institute for Tax & Finance (IITF), together with Thomas Jefferson School of Law (TJSL), San Diego, California, USA is proud to present the Diploma in Payroll Taxes for the South African tax practitioner, payroll administrator and human resource managers.

IITF has done some extensive research in Tax Risk Management over the years, and one of the greatest stumbling blocks, when dealing with tax risk, are the payroll taxes. The Revenue Service time and time again audits companies, sometimes with severe ramifications. It is the responsibility of the individual organisations to appoint skilled payroll administrators, and yet there is very limited offerings, from an educational point of view, dealing with payroll taxes.

In 2011, IITF has added this very valuable program to its stable, giving organisations (and tax practitioners) the opportunity to properly skill themselves in this area of taxation.

Together with the international qualification through the American Bar Association accredited Thomas Jefferson School of Law this gives students a very unique qualification, that is unparalleled by anything currently on offer in South Africa.
