From a SARS perspective, VAT registration comes with the potential for revenue as well as the danger of revenue losses associated with potential refunds. The net result is that the registration process can become onerous if indicia exist that could likely result in claims for unwarranted refunds. This webinar focuses mainly on the administrative processes associated with VAT registration for newly formed small businesses.
