Budget 2022: Your Share of Billions in Tax Relief and Business Support

Calling it a “good story to tell”, Finance Minister Enoch Godongwana announced, in his first Budget Speech, welcome respite from tax increases, tax relief of R5.2 billion for individuals and businesses, as well as further measures to support businesses in their economic recovery.   

These include no increase in the fuel levy, and adjusted tax brackets and rebates for individual taxpayers. For companies, there is a reduction in the tax rate, support in the form of an increase in the Employment Tax Incentive, and a revised support scheme for businesses in distress due to Covid-19.

In this article, we provide a helpful overview of the important tax announcements made, as well as highlight a few issues mentioned in the Budget Speech to be taken note of.

SARS Makes SMME Tax Compliance Easier  
Multiple Income Streams? The PAYE Dangers and a New Option for Pensioners  

Individuals, special trusts, companies and small business corporations will see some relief from the Budget 2022 proposals, and to help you quantify that, and as a convenient reminder of the various other taxes that remain unchanged, we share both the official SARS Tax Tables and a link to Fin 24’s Budget Calculator (just follow the four-step process to do your own calculation).

The Tax Tables cover Individuals, Special Trusts and Trusts, Companies, Small Business Corporations, Turnover Tax for Micro Businesses and Transfer Duty.

Tax compliance among Small, Medium and Micro Enterprises (SMMEs) has been forced into the spotlight by The South African Revenue Service (SARS) who in January launched a new monthly newsletter dedicated to the sector. The January issue covered the matter of tax compliance and revealed a number of new initiatives by SARS to streamline services and encourage smaller businesses to meet their tax obligations.

While SARS indicated that the aim of the new newsletter is to generally “share relevant information pertaining to your SMME’s tax affairs and interaction with SARS [and help] you better understand how to meet your compliance obligations” it's clear that by so comprehensively dealing with compliance in the first issue SARS has earmarked the area as being of major concern and a focus going forward. 


A nightmare situation for many South African taxpayers is discovering after their year-end tax assessment that the PAYE they paid on various income streams during the year was not enough. The result is a substantial tax debt, which can often not be settled in time to prevent hefty late payment penalties and interest.

To avoid this happening, taxpayers with multiple incomes can request PAYE to be deducted at a higher rate than the normal tax rate during the year. In fact, from 1 March, SARS will do this automatically for pensioners with multiple incomes.

In this article we discover why there is often a tax shortfall even when PAYE is deducted from multiple income streams, and how to avoid this in future.
