What is Provisional Tax?
Provisional Tax is the mechanism by which you pay SARS amounts related to your income tax assessment. It happens twice a year with Provisional Tax 01 and 02. It is not a separate tax, just the payment mechanism.
The second provisional tax submission is required 12 months after the start of the financial year.
It contains the best estimate of the year's total taxable income as well as the related estimate of total tax payable for the year. Depending on any first provisional tax payment made, a payment for the balance to SARS, up to the estimate, is required.
There may be mitigating factors such as assessed losses that can reduce the amount. Don't forget about the Small Business Corporation (SBC) Tax or Turnover Tax options where applicable.
SARS also provides a basic amount relevant to businesses with less than R1million of taxable income. If your estimate is below this amount then be prepared to justify this.
