Attention small business owners:
Do you want to pay less taxes?
Now you can
It’s no secret that taxes form a huge chunk of your business’s expenses. A chunk you would rather see in your bank account, I’m sure!
You can’t avoid the taxman. But you CAN make the most of tax loopholes and systems that shrink your tax liability...
And Turnover Tax may just be one of them!
Turnover Tax was implemented by SARS, specifically to help micro-businesses in South Africa by reducing the paperwork and the taxes they have to pay.
Registering for Turnover Tax is as easy as the TT01 form…
We’ll show you how to register – step-by-step. It’ll take you minutes, literally!
To qualify, all you need to do is answer a few simple questions about your turnover and your business structure.
Checklist: Do you qualify to pay less tax?
Answer “Yes” to all these questions, to qualify for Turnover Tax and pay less in tax:
- Will your turnover be R1 million or less for the year of assessment?
- Is your business registered for Vat – and if so, are you willing to be de-registered from Vat to be on the Turnover Tax system? (Though from 1 March 2012, you’ll be allowed to be registered for Vat and Turnover Tax).
- Does your financial year-end fall on the last day of February?
- Can you confirm that you weren’t registered for Turnover Tax in the last three years?
- If you earn income from “professional services”, can you confirm that it’s not more than 20% of the total income for the year?
- If your business has disposed of assets, can you confirm the income from this disposal (over the last three years) is less than R1.5 million in total?
- Do you agree your business is not a public benefit organisation (PBO)? Non-profit company (NPC) or a recreational club?
- If your business is a labour broker, does it have a SARS exemption certificate?
- If the business is a partnership, will all the partners remain individuals throughout the coming year of assessment?
- Can you confirm that neither the owner nor any of the partners hold shares/interests in a CC, company or cooperative? Remember, this excludes:
- Interests in listed South African companies;
- Interests in collective investment schemes;
- Interests in body corporates and share block companies;
- Interests in venture capital companies;
- Interests of less than 5% in social or consumer co-operatives;
- Interests of less than 5% in cooperative burial societies or primary savings co-operative banks;
- Interests in friendly societies;
- Interests in a company that didn’t trade during any year of assessment and which didn’t own assets with a total market value that exceeds R5 000 during any year of assessment;
- Interests in any company that has taken steps to liquidate, wind up or deregister?
