Tax happens and that is as certain as our eventual demise but it need not be taxing to understand.  The understanding of Individual and Corporate Tax is essential to the longevity of any business.  Through the thorough understanding of Corporate Tax the implications on business transactions can be calculated.  By the understanding of Individual Tax, you don't only ensure that your personal taxes are paid but that your employees receive the necessary IRP 5 documentation from you in anticipation of the Individual Tax Filing Season before the Tax deadlines set by SARS.

Taxes are paid to the South African Revenue Service (SARS) that collects tax from individuals and businesses in South Africa on behalf of the Government in order to provide for and to maintain the quality of various public services.  Deductions are taken into account and can in turn lead to Tax refunds to citizens.
