What is a Provisional Tax?
Provisional Tax 03 (Top-Up) is a payment mechanism that allows you to pay SARS any shortfall not covered by your previous two provisional tax payments. The third provisional tax payment is not submitted as per your Provisional Tax 01 and 02 - just a payment.
The third provisional tax submission is required 6 months after financial year-end. This allows for a fairly accurate assessment of the tax due to SARS, based on your estimated amount.
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 an R1million of taxable income. If your estimate is below this amount SARS will require justification for this.
