The provisional tax system contains many complexities and mistakes or oversight of these can be very costly both in terms of time and money


The provisional tax system contains many complexities and mistakes or oversight of these can be very costly both in terms of time and money. One aspect of these complexities came to light earlier in 2022 when SARS imposed penalties on the late submission of tax returns by taxpayers who utilised the special tax submission deadline applicable to “provisional taxpayers” whereas SARS asserted that they were in fact, not provisional taxpayers. Apart from the fundamental question of who/what is a “provisional taxpayer”, there are also numerous other areas of the legislation that cause confusion and costly errors by taxpayers, such as the penalties for underestimating taxable income, penalties and interest on underpayment of provisional tax and making sure that you pay the correct amount of provisional tax without having to obtain a refund from SARS.

This two-part provisional tax series has been especially compiled to provide a practical and up-to-date explanation and analysis of the provisional tax legislation to enable attendees to properly manage their provisional tax obligations, thus avoiding costly errors, and excessive time spent managing penalties and interest.

Professor Jackie Arendse has presented updates for The Tax Faculty for many years and audiences always appreciate her ability to explain the complex tax matters in a practical and comprehensible manner so that attendees come away with a real understanding of the content and an ability to apply their knowledge in business and personal contexts.

The webinars will equip tax practitioners and business owners to manage their provisional tax obligations in the most tax-efficient manner.
