SARS has now defined the controlling bodies for Tax Practitioners. I'm a payroll administrator, ie. I process the payroll each month and send the reports to the clients to pay PAYE, UIF etc as generated by Pastel and lodge the Bi-annual recons using the clients efiling details, but I in no way actually advise the client or his employees on their tax affairs. I am currently registered with ICB.
My question is whether I would be considered by SARS to be a Tax Practitioner and required to register with a controlling body (SAIT) and take the exam etc.
I can't find any definition which specifically includes payroll administrators.
Your insights would be appreciated.
