Tax Update 2: Use The Correction Facility On eFiling

Don’t forget the Correction function on eFiling. This allows taxpayers to correct errors made in income tax and VAT submissions (you can only use the VAT Correction tab for understatements or overstatements). If you realise a mistake has been made, it pays to correct it. This should improve communications with SARS – if SARS pick up this error before you do, it could lead to unnecessary disputes and all the anxiety this can bring upon a taxpayer.

Note you can only use this Correction tab to amend the last version submitted to SARS, so make sure the correct submission is with SARS.
