The four consequences of not keeping your records
  • SARS will impose a fixed penalty on you (administrative non compliance penalty);
  • This amount is proportional to the amount of assessed loss;
  • The fixed amount will INCREASE monthly until you can fulfill SARS or remedy the situation; and
  • You'll be committing a criminal offence. If you are found guilty you'll have a fine or can go to jail for two years!

As you can see, keeping your records are very important. What is equally important is that your records reflect accurately.

Three things to remember when you keep your records

  • Keep records for five years (hard copies and electronic copies); and

Until next time,
