The South African Revenue Service (SARS) has introduced a modernised
and fully customised Income Tax Return for Trusts (ITR12T) replacing the old
IT12TR return. The new return aims to improve the experience you will have when
completing it because it is interactive and fully customised as well as
pre-populated with the trust’s information. Furthermore, assessment results
will be available in real-time.

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.
