Tax Season 2022 Now Open: Beware, This Year’s Deadlines are Shorter!

Yet another tax season is upon us, and this year the D-dates are much closer than you think! With the submission deadlines for all taxpayers substantially earlier this year, taxpayers are well-advised to get started on their tax returns without delay, making sure there is sufficient time to address any potential issues that may arise, and to avoid the substantial penalties and fees for late or non-submission.

In this article, we look at the who, how and when of this 2022 Tax Season; highlight some issues that require special attention; and suggest practical next steps to help you avoid the last-minute rush, the risk of errors and omissions, and the cost of late submissions, penalties and audits.

Keep Your Business Simple!  
Owe SARS a Tax Debt? Here Are Your Options…  
Learning The Essential Art of Delegation  

Being in business can sometimes feel a little like running a race. There is a fear that if you aren't moving forward, you are somehow falling behind. This sense leads to business leaders constantly sniffing out new opportunities, and trying to develop, create and grow new avenues of income for their company in the hopes that being diversified may help make them immune to imagined economic crises of the future. Leaders may therefore be surprised to discover that while finding new areas for growth can ultimately help a company it is not always the best solution.

There are, fortunately, ways for taxpayers to make a payment arrangement, request a compromise, and ask for a suspension of payment during a tax dispute, all of which are best addressed with professional tax assistance to avoid SARS’ debt collection process. 


Starting a business is often a lonely process. In the beginning you are doing it all, from registering the company to meeting with clients, putting together presentations and managing stock. As the company grows it then becomes necessary to start giving some of these tasks to other people to ensure everything can get done and it's at this stage that business owners need to learn the subtle art of letting go of full control. As the company grows even further it's going to be essential that more and more important tasks are taken out of the hands of the company founder and given to employees to do, but this doesn't mean the founder no longer has a say in what happens.

The transition from doing to leading is probably one of the most important steps a company founder will take and like any other skill it can be learnt. Here is how.
