    Any individual that derives a total salary income before tax of less than R350 000 in a full year from a single employer and does not have any other sources of additional income (such as rental income or interest from investments), and does not wish to lodge a claim against that income, is not required to submit an income tax return.  Claims against income would include items such as medical expenses, travel expenses or retirement annuity premiums.   

    Any natural person that falls outside these parameters, or entity (trust, company, etc) is required to register with SARS for income tax and submit annual returns.  Failure to register and meet SARS filing requirements and deadlines could render the taxpayer liable to penalties. 

    Whether you are unsure about income tax registration or are unfamiliar with the income tax returns process, our team will ensure that you meet all relevant annual tax return requirements to achieve the desired taxation compliance status.


    The provisional taxation system is an alternative collection mechanism to monthly PAYE, which would be collected by an employer from the salaried taxable income of its employees. An individual that derives taxable income that is not subject to PAYE, is required to register as a provisional taxpayer.  Provisional tax is payable in two parts twice annually, based on estimated taxable income for the tax year in question, with a top-up or additional payment (if applicable) upon assessment. 

    All companies, trusts and other juristic entities automatically fall into the provisional tax system.

    Our tax consultants can assist with provisional tax registration and administration to ensure your business’s compliance.
    • A one-stop service
    Dealing with SARS as a small business owner is a challenge for most, and a real distraction from the everyday challenges of running your own business. Let us do it for you – all as part of your fixed-price package. Our packages are designed for small business owners and will help you maintain tax compliance, enjoy revolutionised processing and reconciliation, give you access to monthly reports for improved decision making and much more.
    • Tax compliance without the stress and uncertainty

    SARS is known to issue heavy penalties to non-compliant taxpayers. Additionally, interest can be levied on outstanding amounts, which can be detrimental to any business.

Our integrated platform puts all your information in one place, making it easy for us to provide complete records for SARS and the Department of Labour. No more searching through piles of files and spreadsheets to maintain compliance – we’ll sort it all out for you, leaving you with more time on your hands to focus on other aspects of your business.
