The annual tax season starts on 1 July 2019 – the first day for completing SARS income tax returns.
The tax season runs from July to November every year and for provisional taxpayers who submit via eFiling, it runs until January the next year.
The SPF Client Care Centre (CCC) experiences high volumes of requests for contribution certificates every year, placing normal service delivery under pressure.
This year, the distribution dates for the annual benefit statements and tax information stretch from 15 May to 31 July 2019. With this in mind, the tax information will only be available and shared with SARS during this period.
This is where we need your help. If your client requires tax information after these dates, you can avoid the queues by using alternative ways of obtaining the information. Don’t forget that efficient and effective self-help services are available to you on SanPort at the click of a button.
Over the remainder of the year we’ll discuss the self-help transactions available to you with step-by-step guidelines to help you take advantage of the benefits they offer.
Some benefits of self-help transactions
- Reduce time spent on administration as you no longer have to wait for answers to calls or emails
- Obtain information through easy-to-use transactions tailor-made for you, without speaking to a consultant
- Ease pressure on the CCC so your other more complex requests can be dealt with sooner
- Help you to become self-sufficient.
