Product Information


Section 18A(1) and (2) of the INCOME TAX ACT 58 OF 1962, potentially provide a taxpayer with a deduction for bona fide donations made to any approved organisation, if the donation is supported by a section 18A receipt issued by that approved PBO organisation. However many charities are subject to tax abusers and don’t understand their duties and liabilities.

Accountants and tax practitioners should ensure that their PBO clients understand their duties, assist with implementing accounting and reporting systems, shunning tax abusers, and issuing audit certificates based on rigorous and relevant procedures.

Accountants also carry the responsibility to better understand the challenges faced by SARS, the NPO Sector and the common abuse mechanisms deployed.

Join us in a discussion on important S18A matters to improve your responses, assist in preventing taxation leakages and contributing positively to our country’s tax system.
