Speaker: Jean du Toit from Tax Consulting South Africa.
Summary: Each week, SAIT issues the Weekly Tax Practice Highlights to its members. The newsletter is curated weekly by SAIT’s Tax Experts, using their years of experience to identify, investigate, and discuss the most important tax-related matters that arose in the past week, and cast forward to anticipate future events. The intention is to assist Tax Professionals in a very practical way, not only to stay up to date but also to share a ‘behind the scenes’ look with them that they would otherwise not be privy to. During the monthly Tax News, Jean du Toit provides a general overview and summary discussion of the past month’s Weekly Tax Practice Highlights. Jean touches on legislative amendments and general tax-related events but mostly focusses on SARS updates and practical operational matters.
