Here are the agenda points discussed at the SARS Regional Stakeholders meeting.

 

Quarter 1

 

Agenda points discussed at Kimberley (Northern Cape region):

 

  1. “Efiling and e@syFile general Q and A” (Ayanda)
  2. Request for supporting documents includes a request to provide reasons for why no understatement penalty should be imposed, when we are still in the audit phase and no additional assessment has been issued yet.
  3. Signature requirements on an IRP3(b) when applying for a fixed percentage directive. Other branches have been insisting that this form be signed by the employer instead of the employee based on an internal memo circulated, while the forms have not been amended and the instruction as per the guide and the website clearly states that these forms should be signed by the employee/tax payer.
  4. PCC cannot always provide full details, limited to interest amount assessed and/or bank name.
  5. Bank account number provided by SARS - not known by taxpayer.
  6. When confronting SARS with non-existence of bank account, SARS rephrase that information was provided by bank. - Issue:  SARS refuse to exclude amount from income even if bank confirmed non-existence of account. It seems to be a problem with SARS and bank interface. Per SARS the taxpayer does not have sufficient proof to exclude amount from income as SARS rely on third part information.
 

WHY REGISTER WITH SAIT?

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.
