Tax legislation and application is complex and can cause confusion, resulting in costly errors and penalties for taxpayers. Tax practitioners have an obligation to society and to their clients to ensure sound tax compliance.
This programme will prepare you with the knowledge and practical skills to provide tax compliance services by preparing and submitting tax returns, reviewing completed tax records, verifying, and availing source documents.

The skills gained in this module will ensure that theoretical knowledge can be practically applied in the completion and submission of tax returns without errors namely ITR12, IRP6, EMP501, EMP201 returns, ITR14 and VAT201 returns as well as the IT14SD.
