Use this checklist to guarantee your input tax claim won't be rejected
Remember, 'you can claim input tax which you previously haven't claimed within a period of five years from the tax period in which you were first entitled to claim it,' advises the Loose Leaf. Just ensure you have the tax invoices and calculations available should SARS decide to audit you.
