The Tax Professional Qualification has been successfully
registered as a Learnership with the Department of Higher Education and
Employer organisations can therefore commence with the
review of the Practical Skills and/or Workplace Experience content of their
current graduate or other training programmes in order to align it to the
content of the Tax Professional Qualification. Learners enrolled on current
internship programmes will receive recognition for their Workplace Experience.
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.
