Title / Topic

Turnover Tax: the who, what and how

Presenters : Carmen Westermeyer


When a client with a micro business asks you about turnover tax, does it send chills down your spine? Many taxpayers and practitioners are put off by this simplified taxation method due to a lack of understanding of the intricate rules outlined by SARS for eligibility as a turnover taxpayer.

SARS provides an online test on their website to establish whether your client is eligible to register for this tax system. You can try the test out here: Do I qualify for Turnover Tax?

However, as easy as taking the test may seem, tax professionals need to understand the rules, terminology, and correct procedures to advise clients appropriately.
