PAYE,PIT and TRUST Changes From SARS
NEW INFORMATION FROM SARS ON PAYE, PIT, AND TRUST CHANGES WILL TAKE PLACE IN JUNE
PAY AS YOU EARN ADMINISTRATIVE PENALTIES UPDATE:
SARS will implement the PAYE Admin Penalty solution in June 2021. The established interim solution gave SARS the option to enforce PAYE administrative penalties, which meant charging administrative fines for late submission of EMP501 reconciliations. The PAYE admin penalty was separated into three phases, the first two of which were already implemented.
TRUST FILING SEASON: FORM AND SYSTEM CHANGES TO BE INTRODUCED
SARS is constantly improving its service offerings, systems, and processes for submitting income tax returns for trusts (ITR12T). We believe that these reforms will give taxpayers the transparency and certainty they need to meet their tax obligations, making compliance easier. The Commissioner’s annual notice requires ALL Trusts to submit a Trust return. As a result, it is critical that all Trust representatives (trustees) ensure compliance in this regard.
SARS will make adjustments to the Income Tax Return for Trusts (ITR12T) with effect from June 23, 2023, as well as eFiling upgrades, such as extra questions to be answered in the Income Tax Return Wizard and obligatory supporting documents that must accompany the return.
