The SLP is delivered online and covers the following topics and practical areas:
Topic 1: Accounting for current income tax.
Topic 2: Accounting for deferred tax.
Topic 3: Disclosure in the financial statements.
Topic 4: Reconciling SARS balances.
Topic 5: Accounting treatment of other taxes (dividend tax, donations tax, foreign taxes, and indirect taxes).

Topic 7: Let's get practical: a simulated scenario integrating the knowledge from all the topics.
The course is geared towards tax law experts who do not have an accounting background.
