31 August deadline is looming... Are you prepared?
Here's how to calculate your provisional tax correctly every time

Dear Tax Payer

The last thing you want is to incur penalties because you submit your provisional tax calculations incorrectly...

But all too often tax payers get it wrong and then they are faced with administrative penalty of up to R4 000! It doesn't sound like much, but  this penalty amount doubles after thirty days… Plus interest. And don't forget SARS policy of Pay now, argue later.

Getting the thumbs-up from SARS isn’t simply about handing in a return on time. It’s also about getting the estimates, calculations and paperwork 100% right… Yet this is where taxpayers most often slip up and find themselves facing serious penalties for non-compliance. 

And let’s be honest – few small businesses and individuals can afford to cough up the extra thousands SARS demands!
