The programme will prepare students to operate as tax technicians who are able to provide tax compliance services by preparing and submitting tax returns, reviewing completed tax records, verifying, and availing source documents.
This SLP is built upon practical simulations, ensuring the learning environment simulates reality in tax practice.
Successful completion of the SLP will fully prepare learners for the Tax Technician RPL examination required by the South African Institute of Taxation (SAIT), to obtain membership at a tax technician level along with the appropriate work experience.
The Professional Certificate in Taxation is equivalent to the first level in your learning journey to achieve the Occupational Certificate: Tax Technician (NQF 6).
The syllabus for this SLP has been specifically arranged in a logical order rather than a mere numerical or random approach. It consists of two semesters:
This semester covers the fundamentals of taxation, salaried employees' income tax, self-employed individual taxes, and payroll taxes. It also covers basic elements of donations tax, tax administration matters, ethics and eFiling for individuals.
This course bridges the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical application. The outcome of this module is to ensure participants are able to submit individual tax returns without errors, namely the ITR12, IRP6, EMP501, and EMP201 returns.
This semester will cover VAT, corporate income tax, key tax administrative procedures and gives participants guidance on ethics and professional responsibilities.
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 the ITR14 and VAT201 returns as well as the IT14SD.
