We look at employers and employees’ tax obligations subsequent to the recent case of ABC (Pty) Ltd v The Commissioner for the South African Revenue Service case no 24819. the case highlighted the importance of employers ensuring that employees’ tax (PAYE) is paid within a week that the amount of PAYE is deducted or withheld from an employee’s salary or wage.
We discuss the current policy underpinning the anti-dividend stripping rules and whether it is in line with commercial reality.
The ‘Tax as a strategic asset’ series focuses on the tax function as a value-added business partner. The second article in the series deals with data science in tax and how to upskill, digitalise and adapt to provide an appropriate tax narrative.
