Tax Practitioner Connect Issue 10 (December 2017)

Welcome to the latest edition of Tax Practitioner Connect, the electronic newsletter for tax practitioners that keeps you up to date with the tax matters that affect you.

According to Section 240 A of the Tax Administration Act (TAA) 28 of 2011 tax preparers are not allowed to continue practicing without registering as tax practitioners. SARS will no longer allow tax preparers to act on behalf of taxpayers by either completing and/or submitting tax returns. The Act determines that every person who provides advice to another person with respect to the application of a tax Act or completes or assists in completing a document to be submitted to SARS by another person in terms of the tax Act must register with SARS as a tax practitioner. Tax preparers are therefore urged to register as tax practitioners to be able to continue practicing.
