    Tax

    Hi There

    I worked for a company that was not VAT registred, I need a IRP5 from them,
    he keeps advising that he will send it, however I dont think he can.
    How do I now submit my tax return ??

    Sorry, I'm not understanding your post. Why would it make a difference if the business was VAT registered?

    The BIG question probably is -

    Did the employer deduct PAYE?
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Tax

    He deducted tax, the issue for him not being VAT registred he sells consumables and a turnover of more than milloin per month. He liquidated a CC then opened a PTY , for the same business. The liquidation was to get out of the problem.. I think he still has a problem and therefore cannot give me a IRP5, How do I submit my tax return without the IRP5 , Can I write a letter and explain that period , he also never gave payslips.
    When I resigned I asked for it, he sent me a excell spread sheet for the 3x months
    Left because things were not right , could not develop the business - I was the Business Development Manager .. was a joke !
    He said on the e-mail with the excell spread sheet that tax will be paid over, I dont think he could pay it over , because there might be a query from SARS.. I advised them of his conduct.

    The plot thickens............ It is an offense to deduct PAYE and not pay it over to SARS ! The owner/member/director will be held personally liable to SARS for the amounts deducted from the employee.
    Dave can correct if I am wrong but he will not be able to issue an IRP5 if deductions were not paid over.
    I think he is in for a rude awakening !

    As long as the spreadsheet reflects the PAYE deductions, I would hope this and a sworn affadavit by you as to the reason for a lack of IRP5 might serve you well.

    There's still a chance that your previous employer has actually gone through the annual recon process - you'll know when you get draw your tax return in this year's filing season as the IRP5/IT3a should be listed already.

    If it isn't there I suggest you will do well to go into a SARS office to file your tax return this year, rather than try to do it online or anything like that.
