It would be very helpful if the employees at the LBC actually did their work. In a recent matter none of my client's correspondence relating to the entries in its account have been answered. SARS simply appears to do as they please.
SARS is running such a function at the moment. On their home page, they have a 'What's new' tab under which the latest amendments, forms and other relevant information can be found. Please use the following link to access it: http://www.sars.gov.za/Pages/Whats-New.aspx.
Sharon. Can you please consider to request SARS to give taxpractioners a type of "tab' or something else on thir web site, may be with a password, where they post all changes whatso ever to any legistaltion, regulations or documents. This will enable us to get always the latest documents ect and not searching the whole web site. This will also help to get the updated forms. We had a situation where we have used a new form and whent to SARS just to find out that the form have been replaced. A " tab" with new forms will prevent this.
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
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.
