Due to the Easter weekend falling
between 29 March and 1 April 2013, the South African Revenue Service
(SARS) would like to remind taxpayers that all returns and payments due
in that period must be received by SARS by no later than 28 March 2013.
returns and payments due and payable by 31 March 2013 must be paid by
no later than the last business day before the Saturday, Sunday or
public holidays as described in the relevant Acts. Please note: It
remains the full responsibility of the taxpayer to ensure that payment
is received by SARS on time to avoid any penalties and/or interest being
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.
