    Reminder for provisional tax payers

    With SARS no longer sending out reminders or generating the return on e-Filing anymore, I thought it might be a good idea to remind provisional tax payers to do their August 2011 provisonal tax returns by the end of the day on 31st August 2011.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    I was looking around wondering why SARS has been so quiet on provisional tax returns of late, and found a document on the SARS website with this info:

    Changes to the provisional tax process

    The South African Revenue Service (SARS) is introducing changes to the provisional tax process which will affect the way in which provisional taxpayers file their IRP6 returns.

    The following changes will become effective on 28 June 2010:

    • SARS will no longer be issuing printed IRP6 returns. Instead, taxpayers liable for provisional tax must request their returns by registering for eFiling, calling the SARS Contact Centre or visiting their nearest SARS branch.

    • There is no longer a need to register as a provisional taxpayer before obtaining your IRP6. Any taxpayer can request an IRP6 return.

    • Only taxpayers liable for provisional tax will be required to submit their IRP6 returns, and SARS will not enforce this submission during the tax year. However, if at the time of assessment it is determined that the taxpayer was liable for provisional tax, penalties and interest may be levied.

    • A new IRP6 return has been introduced. The form is available in both Adobe Reader and Adobe Flash Player, the latter offering improved performance and user experience. Also, for individuals, it automatically performs tax and rebate calculations and includes built-in upfront field validations.

    • In order to assist taxpayers in managing their tax affairs, SARS has introduced a new Provisional Tax Statement of Account. This provides a holistic view across provisional tax periods.

    So from that I gather if you don't have to make a provisional payment, it seems you don't have to complete the return.
