Tax Compliance – Definition

Tax compliance is defined by National Treasury as having all of your tax affairs in order. Tax affairs are inclusive of PAYE (if paying employees), Income Tax, VAT, Import Duties, Skills Levy and any other tax or levy administered by the South African Revenue Services (SARS).

Each taxpayer (irrespective if an individual, government department, company, trust, etc.) registered with SARS can apply for a certificate that verifies their status.

Such certificates apply to the legal or juristic person and thus covers any transaction entered into by such a legal, juristic or natural person.

In light of the above, all third parties supplying goods and/or services are required to provide a valid proof that their tax affairs are in order to the NRF and to replace such proof where it has expired.

Conditions of Contract

The National Treasury General Conditions of Contract apply to all supply contracts and purchase orders entered into by the NRF with its suppliers.
