South Africa’s Winter Wonderland And SARS Cracks Down On Millionaires
Has anyone else wondered where all the time has gone by? We certainly have!
May has come and gone and we’ve approached our halfway destination. As this marks the end of the 1st financial quarter (for most entities) it’s good to reflect on past performance and realign your goals.
Important Dates & Notices
For the month of June, we have a tiny break on the 16th of June while the nation celebrates Youth Day. To find out more about the origins of Youth Day Feel free to read on here…
Tax and Accounting Deadlines
It has been some time since the announcement, but it is official, the UIF liability monthly contributions limit has increased from R14 872 to R17 712 per month.
As we surpass May all employers’ EMP501 and WCA returns should be filed and submitted.
Other deadlines not to be missed are the VAT submissions by the end of the month and PAYE submissions by the 7th, which are always ongoing. For companies ending with a December year-end provisional taxes are due. These will be advised by your accountant, as always, when they fall due for your business.
Furthermore, it’s an excellent time to start collecting and preparing your Income Tax documents as the opening date should be from the 1st of July.
If you’re not a monthly client and are in need of these returns being filed contact us to arrange that we assist with these returns.
