This webinar is a must for all non-executive directors (NEDs), tax advisors, directors and companies who are obliged to appoint NEDs, to ensure that they are not at risk of exposure and fully comply with SARS Binding General Ruling 41 issued on 10 February 2017 (BGR41). BGR41 will result in adverse VAT consequences for NEDs if all the pitfalls and challenges of accounting for VAT are not fully comprehended. We will unlock the VAT implications in a step-by-step approach to ensure that all the elements are covered, from initial registration to ultimate deregistration.

  • Appointment of third parties to satisfy tax debts (can SARS put a hold on my personal bank account?)
