SAIT recently attended the Regional Stakeholder’s meeting which took place at SARS Alberton.  Listed below are some of the issues raised by various RCB’s - formal minutes will follow shortly.  Members are encouraged to browse through the minutes published in our newsletters as we often receive queries/complaints relating to issues that have already been raised and resolved at the Regional meetings. 

Agenda points covered:

  • Standard Bank MyBills payment issues on eFiling
  • Imposition of section 20A penalty for failure to submit a provisional tax return  
  • Interest on VAT – Not remitted as per request 
  • Delay in taxpayers receiving refunds
  • Lack of correspondence on a VDP application query
  • Verification of bank account details on transfer of tax profile (eFiling) 
  • Carrying forward of capital losses once objection is resolved  
  • SMS’s from SARS without specific details  
  • Tax clearance certificates declined due to audit  

We thank SARS for their willingness to resolve any issues that our members might be experiencing. 


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.
