Diesel Refund

SARS is doing diesel refund audits and if the farmer is not in a position of a logbook they issue a letter of intend to at back the refund; add penalties of 100%. Is there anything that we can do about it. It seems if it is a country wide issue and that the farmers was not aware of the fact that logbooks need to be kept for the refund purposes. 

Can't we suggest to SARS to accept alternative methods to proof the diesel rerund claims up to now and to explain to all farmers via the media what kind of records they should keep. There is already different suggestions (with regards to the information that should be in a logbook) from the SARS officials. It is not always easy to keep a logbook on a farm due to the nature of the conditions on a farm.





Section 240A of the Tax Administration Act, 2011 (as amended) requires that all tax practitioners register with a recognized controlling body before 1 July 2013. It is a criminal offense to not register with both a recognized controlling body and SARS.


The Act requires that a minimum academic and practical requirments be set to register with a controlling body. Click here for the minimum requirements of SAIT.
