I have been working for BlueWare from 1 September 2009 as a bookkeeper (accounts to trial balance). I took over the tax calculations and started doing tax submissions for the company over a period of time. I started doing the SARS Efiling for the company in PAYE and VAT in 2011.
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.
MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS TO REGISTER
