  • Three rules to complete your VAT return correctly and stay under SARS' radar
  • VAT is a 'self-assessment' system. This means you're required to work out if you should be paying money in to SARS, or if you should be getting money back from it. You do this calculation on a VAT return, called a VAT201 via eFiling at the end of your tax period. But because of numerous mistakes VAT vendors make, SARS checks the VAT returns from time to time by way of a VAT audit. And if any... ››› more

  • Do I have any recourse if SARS slaps me with penalties, interest and additional tax?
  • If SARS believes you intentionally under declared your output tax or over claimed your input tax, they will slap you with a hefty additional tax penalty of up to 200% of the tax. So on top of the normal VAT of 14%, you'll now also need to pay additional VAT of up to 28%, plus a 10% penalty and interest. You could even be prosecuted in court and can go to jail. But is there a way out of th... ››› more
