A guide for the treatment of PAYE for VDP purposes has been issued by SARS.

Please click here to access the document.

Furthermore, the following is the latest news regarding VDP in general:

The initial Voluntary Disclosure Programme (VDP1) that commenced in 2010 and closed on 31 October 2011 attracted in excess of 18 000 applications.

During April 2014 the last remaining 240 VDP applications were distributed to VDP evaluators, who are currently processing these cases.

More processing capacity became available as resources from VDP 1 freed up. This has significantly increased the average number of cases finalised per working day from 6.9 during 2013/14 to 20.1 cases per day currently.

The current turnaround time will, as a result, reduce gradually over the next six months to around 31 working days per case.


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.
