The new Qualification for Tax Professionals is an important learning pathway that leads to the Occupational Qualification:

The Tax Professional at NQF Level 8, and will help to increase the number of specialised tax professionals to serve the South African economy and to enhance the quality of tax services provided to the public by private practitioners and by the South African Revenue Service (SARS).   

The Tax Professional Qualification consists of a Knowledge Component which is completed through studies at a registered tertiary institution, Practical Skills Component completed through accredited short courses at tertiary institutions or accredited employer training academies and the Workplace Experience Component completed at an approved workplace experience provider.

As the Assessment Quality Partner (AQP) for the Tax Professional Qualification, the SAIT is responsible for the accreditation of providers for the knowledge and practical skills components and approval of employers that provide the workplace experience components of the Qualification.

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.
