Sars Settlement Agreement

It is important to note that SARS is not bound by a compromise agreement signed between the parties if it turns out that, on the basis that the supplier, i.e. the seller receiving the payment, is responsible for the VAT on the compensation received, that seller must establish to the other party a tax bill reflecting the VAT contained in the amount of compensation. The party making the payment, as the beneficiary of the services, should then have the right to demand a deduction of VAT on the VAT paid in the course of its taxable activities. It follows that the party receiving the payment is left out of its wallet, while the party making the payment is used to the extent of the claimed deduction. In these difficult economic times, more and more taxpayers are fighting against cash flow and are unable to pay their taxes because of SARS. Complicating matters further is that continuous phone calls, emails and text messages from the SARS collection service threaten to take legal action if the debts are not paid. Section 200 of the Tax Administration Act («TAA») deals with compromises on the debts of individuals, trusts, close businesses and businesses. It allows a senior SARS official to compromise a tax debt that could consist of taxes, penalties, interest and even additional taxes if certain requirements are met. The concept of «compromise» is defined as an agreement in Section 192 of the TAA: as an illustration, the effect of non-admission of VAT in the event of an out-of-court settlement is as follows: an important factor that should not be questioned is whether compensation, net of employee tax («PAYE»), is, moreover, the question of whether pay should be deducted from the employer before payment. Failure to deal with it could lead to further disputes. Parties to a labour dispute settled by agreement, in particular an agreement whereby an employer party pays a part of the work a compensatory amount as compensation, should therefore ensure that all are on the same side with regard to the actual after-tax amount paid to the part of the work. Where compensation relates in part to a service and partly to the compensation of a seller for the losses incurred, an appropriate distribution of the payment within the meaning of Article 10, point 22, of the VAT Act is necessary. The portion of the payment related to the losses incurred is not subject to VAT, while the part of the payment received in return for the services provided is collected at VAT.

It is therefore desirable that the transaction agreement clearly specify the compensation to be paid for each part of the debt. If you disagree with your tax debt, you can file a dispute. To file a dispute, please consult objections and appeals. Even if you challenge the tax debt, you still have to pay the debts while your dispute is being processed. Disputes are also often resolved by a financial settlement. Section 5 (3) of labour relations Act 66 (amended) (LRA) provides that parties can resolve all labour disputes by agreement. The labour tribunal of AL SHA Trading Pty Ltd vs. Neil Harrison, the CCMA and the Sheriff of the High Court, Germiston, J235/15 confirms that if the settlement agreement or arbitration award remains silent on whether the premium is net of PAYE, the gross amount of PAYE and the legal deductions of PAYE are in the hands of the part of the work. Where the arbitration award, order or transaction relates to an unfair labour practice, SARS examines the facts of this case and the nature of the amounts awarded to determine whether the provisions of item (f) or (d) of the definition of gross income are applicable to the amount.
