9 September 2020: VAT 201 compliance

Presenter: Carmen Westermeyer

Completing a VAT201 declaration is a basic compliance requirement of any registered VAT vendor. This is even required from certain non-resident suppliers of electronic services to South African residents. The form itself is not very long and doesn’t contain many fields. However, it is important to have a proper understanding of what each field means and to be familiar with the VAT201 process. In this webinar, we will decode the VAT201 form to ensure that the fields are completed correctly and provide an accurate reflection of the true nature of transactions and related VAT consequences.

This session will look at the following issues:

  • Common VAT terms and transactions.
  • Decoding the VAT201 form.
  • Common eFiling concerns.
  • What to do when there is an error on the form.

 

15 October 2020: Estates compliance

Presenter: Carmen Westermeyer

When an individual passes away, the focus is mostly on the estate duty consequences of property owned on the date of death. What is often overlooked is that a brand-new taxpayer comes into existence on the date of death of a natural person: The deceased estate. This webinar is aimed at providing an overview of the processes and responsibilities related to the administration of a deceased estate. Delegates will obtain an understanding of the legal requirements as well as the responsibilities of the executor.

This session will cover the following areas:

  • Who needs to register the estate?
  • Forms required by the master’s office.
  • Responsibility of the executors.
  • An overview of the liquidation and distribution account.
