Penalties on Vat201 returns for 201309

Has anybody else noticed that Vat201 returns for 201309 are attracting penalties when they are submitted and paid on efiling after the 25th?

Surely the efiling deadline of the last working day of the month (for efiling submission and payment) means no penalties or interest if filed and paid on efiling on or before the last working day. Is this a system problem relating to the phasing out of the debit pull system or is Sars being sneaky again by implementing new rules without bothering to inform stakeholders?

Hi Mr.Maharaj

Based on what SARS states per its "calendar screen” dated 26/6/2013 under its website , your understanding is  clearly correct .

So hopefully it’s a system error on their part and not something sneaky as you say.



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.
