Personal Tax Services
In South Africa, individuals tax starts with what a person receives and accrues and includes this as part of their gross income for a particular tax year. Tax years run from March to February of the next year, for example: 1st March 2016 to 28th February 2017 is known as the 2017 tax year. Certain exemptions or deduction may be claimed against the gross income, in our preparation of your personal income tax return (ITR12).
Our registered tax professionals specialise in the preparation and submission of your tax return or provisional tax that may include calculations of allowances you received or Capital Gains Tax and Fringe Benefit Tax. Income tax is the normal tax which is paid on your taxable income.
