  1. Hello I've been in Canada since Dec 2018 and filed my SARS tax return last year like I normally would, but didn't change any details. Can anybody tell me which details I have to change on my profile? Do I have to put in my Canadian address and phone number? Additionally, when filing this year, I will be submitting a zero/empty return. I have not financially emigrated, but don't live in or have a home in SA. Was only back in SA for 3 weeks in 2019. Do I mark the box that says "Mark if you ceased to be a resident of RSA during this year of assessment."? And the next question asks "Were you unemployed for the full year of assessment and did not receive any income...". I've been employed for the year of assessment in Canda, but not at all in SA. Does this question only apply to SA? Anything else to consider? Thanks
  2. Hi all, Any idea how long TAX COMPLIANCE STATUS SERVICE ACTIVATION takes? I requested activation weeks ago via eFiling, and nothing has happened yet... Thanks.
  3. Hi all, I have the privilege of having a really cool boss here in SA. As I know it's extremely difficult to get a job in Canada from South Africa, he said that he would be willing to support me for a couple of months in Canada (as my job mainly involves computer-based work). Now, the amount that I will make when converted to CAD isn't much, but it will supplement my savings as I look for a better job in Canada. What are the tax implications for this? Will I be losing too much salary to various regulations and conversion fees etc? Should I rather go straight to McDonald's for a job when I land? I'm generally a rather risk-averse person, and like to have some level of financial security - so this is all very daunting for me. Any advice?
  4. I know this has been discussed on the forums but it was only today that I wondered if I should give up my SA citizenship because of this. Any thoughts? South Africa’s big expat tax is coming (Article 6 Jan 2019)

    Tax season starts tomorrow! Hope you guys are ready. The 2018 tax filing season will run from Feb 26, 2018 - April 30, 2018. The CRA will have extended hours with regards tax enquiries.

As of January 1, 2017, the children’s arts tax credit and children’s fitness tax credit were eliminated. As of July 1, 2017, the public transit tax credit was eliminated. What's new -

    PPS payout - taxed in Canada?

    Does anyone have experience with the PPS provident fund (taxfree) payout after age 60 - when you transfer that money to Canada, do you have to pay Canadian tax on that? When I turn 60, I will have been in Canada 7 years, and citizen for 3 years.
  7. Good day fellow forum members. Would like some information from those of you that might have something to share. To make a long story short. I am in the process of registering on the Express entry program and getting all documents in order and trying to determine what hurdles I could potentially face and sorting them out before I need to resolve problems when I have a limited number of time e.g.. 90 days to submit application etc. Problem background - Since I want to potentially immigrate I am getting all my ducks in a row or at least I am trying. I however realised that I have an outstanding balance at SARS of about R2500, this is not a problem and I will pay. I however still need to submit two tax return IRP5 documents from 2011 and 2013 respectively. Now I don't know why that was not done either I was sleeping or the company had been sleeping but none the less that is my situation, and to complicated matters even more...The company where I am supposed to get those IRP5's presently so that I can submit them to SARS had been closed and does no longer exist. I need to get this sorted, not only because I want to immigrate but obviously being in good standing with SARS is non negotiable. Questions : 1.) Any input, tips or help as to how about I will be able to "fix" my situation. 2.) Will at any point in the express entry process or the Application for permanent residency it influence my chance of being approved if I have not submitted all my information to SARS? Will CIC require IRP5's or proof of good standing to SARS or any such thing? Regards

    SA non-residents earning income in SA

    Does anybody on this forum still earn income from SA? If you have, have you looked into SARS applying a non-resident tax to income earned from the 2016 tax year? I am not referring to withholding tax royalties and dividends, but on income for services rendered.

    SARS History?

    Hi came across this alarming news in Business Day. Appears as if another previously functioning state institution is being compromised. Looks like the rule of tax law is being subverted in order to protect President Zuma from paying his tax liability for the finantial benefit he received by way of Inkandla. ( quarter billion rand emplyee benefit?)
