On 1 October 2012 the Tax Administration Act came into operation except for certain provisions relating to interest. This Note provides guidance on the identification of those interest provisions which have not come into operation.
Issue 1 of this Note omitted to include sections 64B(9) and 64K(6) of the Income Tax Act No. 58 of 1962 in Annexure B. This oversight has been corrected.
