I'm talking about the Voluntary Disclosure Programme (VDP).
What is it exactly?
In 2010, SARS introduced the VDP to encourage taxpayers to voluntarily admit their non-compliance with SARS, such as mistakes on their returns, registering for the incorrect tax type and so on.
But bear in mind that you have to first qualify for the VDP if you wish to take advantage of it.
How to qualify for the VDP
The requirements to qualify for the VDP include the following…
· Your disclosure has to be voluntary;
· It has to be a new disclosure. In other words, you can't have already disclosed it to SARS;
· You must provide all relevant information pertaining to your situation. IN other words, you mustn't withhold any important information from SARS;
· It can't result in a refund from SARS;
*To find out what all the other conditions are, simply page over to page 003 of Chapter V 05

Remember, this is an opportunity for you to correct what you've done wrong. So if you choose not to, don't expect
SARS to go easy on you.
Also, don't worry about the information you disclose, as it's completely confidential. You see, the VDP is a completely separate unit within SARS, and so they won't go sharing your information with other SARS units. They're simply not allowed to!
