VAT Returns

VAT Overview

If your company is operating a business in South Africa, selling a vatable product or service and you exceed the turnover thresholds  then you are obliged to register for VAT. It is a legal obligation to register if your turnover exceeds these thresholds.  If you go above these thresholds and do not register the Revenue Commissioners can register you themselves. Then they will charge you VAT on your sales on the basis that you should have been charging vat for the whole of the year that you first exceeded the threshold onwards. If as is often the case in a recession you fall below the thresholds then you can also deregister for vat.
