When last did you visit the SARS Webpage aimed at Expatriates?
As of 10 February 2013 the first indication that this webpage is sadly if not badly neglected is the fact that the most recent update reads: Our NEW tax season started 1 July 2011! Yes, in 2013 about to collect Feb 2013 provisional taxes and launch the 2013 tax filing season, SARS Expatriates team are living in 2 years into the past.
Oh, and there is no reason have sympathy, blogger as repeatedly informed SARS and very specific leading expatriate team members. As we are still awaiting the technical correction on the process and rules behind the encashment of Retirement Annuities by formal emigrants (end March it will 12 months since blogger alerted the SARS Retirement Fund Team and the DTA team and the Expatriates team). Recently blogger got his hands on a letter send to the Retirement Fund Interest Group in which the listed author admits an update is required. That letter is also 4 months old end of Feb 2013.
Until SARS shows respect to expats blogger suggests we need to make peace with this email reply:
