The 2013 Tax Amendments included amendments in respect of the registration of enterprises as VAT vendors, and the long awaited Regulations in respect of indirect exports have finally been released; both signalling good news for VAT vendors.

However the new IT14SD form and the Tax Administration Act have substantially increased SARS's information gathering powers, thereby making it a great deal easier for SARS to detect non-compliance by existing VAT vendors, and enterprises that have failed to register for VAT as and when required. The obligation of vendors to document transactions correctly to substantiate the VAT treatment remains essential.

In this seminar we will address many of the area's most commonly audited and the documentary requirements vendors are required to meet. We will also address the increased reconciliation required in terms of the new IT14SD form, and the relevant implications of the Tax Administration Act.
