The annual amendments to the taxation laws werefinally promulgated into law on the 28 December 2011 and differed in a number of respects to the initial drafts that were published in June 2011. As highlighted by the Minister of Finance in his medium term budget speech the South African Revenue Services will be required to continue the enforcement of tax compliance to assist in the collection of maximum revenue from taxpayers, and SARS has indicated a renewed focus on high net worth individuals in 2012 as well as corporate taxpayers.
