When are tax services applicable in South Africa?

Tax returns are required for most businesses in South Africa every tax season, also known as the tax year. If you don’t submit your tax returns in a timely fashion or follow the accurate protocol, there are unavoidable penalties from SARS that will affect your business.

By ensuring you follow the right process and submit your returns during the allocated months, you can avoid any unfavourable repercussions. And this is best done through tax services.

When do businesses need tax services in South Africa?

Every tax season, businesses in South Africa need to file and submit their taxes. The tax season, or tax year, begins on the 1st of March and runs to the last day of November. Thus, every year from July to November, businesses need to have their tax records and relevant documentation in order and submit the annual tax return for the previous year.

The documentation you need to submit depends on your business type, the turnover of your business, your number of employees, and many other factors. There are corresponding documents for this, such as your EMP501, EMP201, and SDL. This is why it is so vital that business owners consult with professionals to make sure every aspect of tax returns is prepared and submitted perfectly.

The penalties for noncompliance or incorrect submissions can be costly and should be avoided.

I agreed to work with someone called Conrad – and as soon as I signed, he ‘left the company’. Very strange, but I persevered, agreeing to pay for their top package for management accounts, payroll and basically all accountancy services. I now found myself with someone called Arnaud. Not for long, as I was swiftly palmed off to someone else.Over the last month, they’ve become really unhelpful, so we asked to leave. They’ve been charging us a registered representative fee for several months when their representative wasn’t registered at all. They’re completely ignoring this point and refusing to refund the months when no one was registered from Thryv on our behalf.They’re now trying to claw more cash from us to get the management accounts for months that we already paid for.Untrustworthy, unreliable and greedy. Don’t do it.
