Avoid a SARS tax audit by remembering these four vital points

# 1: Always account for your taxes correctly
When you submit your tax return, you must account for all your taxes and ensure you enter them correctly on your tax return.
It might be a simple mistake to add an extra zero to the end of a number or put the decimal point in the wrong place, but these mistakes could easily earn you an audit. So account for your tax correctly on your tax return. 
# 2: Always remember your different kinds of tax
You have to pay normal corporate income tax but you might also have to pay Capital Gains Tax, Donations Tax and Secondary Tax on Companies. Ensure you check all the types of taxes your company must pay.

# 3: Handle your employees' taxes correctly
If you don't calculate and hand over the correct amount of PAYE and fringe benefit tax for your employees, SARS might think you're stealing from it and your employees. This will put you on a one way road to an audit.
# 4: Never claim deductions you aren't entitled to
If you claim a deduction you're not entitled to, SARS will audit you very fast. Also attach supporting documents with your tax return to prove you deserve that deduction.
Remembering these important points will help your company ward off tax audits every time.
