Draft Interpretation note on home office expenses
Following the COVID-19 pandemic and the various government restrictions imposed as a result thereof, many employees in South Africa now find themselves remotely working. Employees under these circumstances have had to accommodate this by setting up home offices and bearing certain other expenses in order to facilitate a proper working environment from home.
Remission of penalties following a VDP
In February 2021, the High Court sought to review and determine whether SARS has a statutory duty to consider a taxpayer’s request for remission of interest notwithstanding a voluntary disclosure programme (VDP) agreement having been concluded between the taxpayer and SARS.
The Applicant is Medtronic International Trading S.A.R.L. During the course of June 2004 and May 2017, the Applicant’s accountant embezzled an amount of R537,236,176.00 from the Applicant by submitting false VAT returns to SARS and concealing the embezzlement by seeking reimbursements from SARS.
