SARS’s PAYE matter currently at the Office of the Tax Onbud


Many of us experience never ending problems with SARS. Pay as you earn (PAYE) is no exception.

The Tax Onbud is currently engaged in investigating the PAYE system at SARS. Members in public practice, like EFGAudit Inc, participated in this review. Currently the SAICA (South African Institute of Chartered Accountants) published there findings on the same matter.

At this moment we don’t have any clear idea of the direction in which the investigation is going, but at least we know someone is listening. If you need any assistance with PAYE and payroll matters, feel free to contact EFGAudit for assistance.

Taxation options for start up businesses.

You have maybe left employment for a company and you are planning to start up on your own – or you want to add a new firm to an existing trade that you carry on – or perhaps you want to start out from the beginning of your career as an entrepreneur.

What sort of a structure do you want to have around you – a self-employment model (sole trader) or a business structure (probably a limited company)? The answer for you will involve thinking about the direction in which you expect to go – do you expect to take on staff or fellow-owners? Will you diversify? Or will you aim to remain as a solo operator? And in addition to these commercial questions, there are financial, taxation and legal issues to consider.
