Dividends Tax
  • South African tax resident companies;
  • Foreign companies whose shares are listed on the JSE; or
  • Regulated intermediaries (as defined in section 64D(1))

    Insofar as they (other than a headquarter company) pay a “dividend” as defined in section 64D(1), which includes dividends and foreign dividends.

Dividends Tax is payable by the beneficial owner of the dividend, but is withheld from the dividend payment and paid to SARS by a withholding agent. The person liable for the tax, however, remains ultimately responsible to pay the tax should the withholding agent fail to or withhold the incorrect tax. An exception to this general principle is where a dividend consists of a distribution of an asset in specie, resulting in the liability for the tax falling on the company itself (such as with STC), which means that it may not withhold the tax from the dividend payment.
