I have a question regarding the responsibility of the employer to deduct the correct PAYE:
I have a client who earned a salary alone from the employer. He does not have a medical aid, pension fund or RAF, therefore there is no reason he should pay less PAYE per month.
His employer simply paid 25% less PAYE over than he should have.
Should the employee be held responsible? Something in the back of my head tells me that it is the employer's responsibility to pay over the correct PAYE, and should the employer not have deducted sufficient PAYE, it is the employer's responsibility to rectify the situation?
Your help will be appreciated!
