The Tax Administration Act (TAA) exposes directors, public officers, compliance officers, company secretaries, and financial managers to significant risks for failure to comply with the provisions of tax law. This risk could even result in these individuals potentially being held personally liable for a company's tax liabilities.

Since it became effective on 1 October 2012, the TAA has now been amended three times, with a fourth set of amendments to be finalised in 2016. As such, the dealings of taxpayer and Tax Practitioner are constantly changing due to the continuous movement in the legislative environment. In some case SARS has only recently started to implement some of the powers given to them in 2012, in terms of the TAA, and taxpayers are only now starting to realise the full impact of such.

In this ever evolving environment, it is crucial that all parties who have dealings with SARS should not only be on top of their rights in terms of the TAA but also know and understand the rights of SARS. All of this has elevated the tax exposure risk of all taxpayers and organisations to new levels, especially with the existence of understatement penalties which SARS can levy to the extent of 200% of the tax liability in question.

Course Content

The seminar will provide a practical overview of the TAA, including the latest in terms of the 2016 amendments:
  • Relationship between the Tax Administration Act and other Tax Acts
  • Reportable Arrangements

  • Detailed look at the dispute resolution process, including 2016 amendments

  • Tax liability, including payment of taxes and recovery of taxes by SARS
  • Suspension of payment and instalment payments
  • Administrative & non-submission penalties as well as understatement penalties
  • Criminal offences and reporting of unprofessional conduct
  • Latest on regulation of Tax Practitioners
  • Other 2016 amendments
