What you will learn

By attending this webinar you will gain the following competencies:

  • Confidently identify and classify supplies.
  • Correctly calculate VAT and complete VAT returns for timely submission.
  • Have a strong appreciation of how VAT is administered by SARS.
  • Understand the financial consequences of incorrect calculations and late submissions.



Value Added Tax (VAT) is an important contributor to government’s tax revenue (25% contribution last year according to the SARS publication Tax Statistics 2022).

Full understanding by bookkeepers of what VAT is and how it is administered by SARS is vital as there are penalties and interest charges levied for late submissions and overdue payments. Besides the obvious timely submission of VAT returns, clients also need their bookkeepers/ accountants to assist with cash flow planning which is directly affected by VAT inflows and outflows.
