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.

Any 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 charged.


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.
