It was, I think, about two years ago that SARS started hitting random dormant companies with administrative penalties of R200 each month for each annual tax return that was overdue.

I still get well over 100 SMSs and emails from SARS advising me that another penalty has been imposed. In the early days, we sent emails to each of the companies to advise them of the penalties, but they generally did not respond, so now I just delete all those messages from SARS.

However, last month, they announced that they are going to start hitting individuals and I have just received my first email in this regard. I went onto e-filing as instructed, opened the penalty statement and it showed zero. So, as usual, it seems that SARS have only done half a job.

But you can be sure that they’ll get something right and that at least some of you will start getting hit. R200 a month quickly builds up to a significant amount of money, so submit your personal tax returns as soon as possible.
