Amendment Acts 

Any intended amendments to primary legislation are announced by the Minister of Finance in his annual Budget Review.
 
They are tabled by the Minister of Finance in the National Assembly as Amendment Bills and, after approval by the Standing Committee on Finance (National Assembly) and the Select Committee on Finance (National Council of Provinces), they are sent to the President for assent before they are promulgated as Acts of Parliament.
 
The promulgation date serves as the implementation date for all the sections of a particular Amendment Act where a specific date is not indicated. Where it is indicated that a section will come into operation “on a date to be fixed by proclamation in the Gazette”, it will be announced in the Government Gazette at a later date by way of a Proclamation.
 
Note:
The Amendment Acts in this list have been grouped according to their numbers within their specific years and not according to their promulgation dates.
