What is provisional tax?

One of our most Frequently asked questions at De Goede:

Where an individual earns taxable income that is not subject to SITE or PAYE deductions such as interest rental or business income he/she must pay provisional tax on this income on a six-monthly basis. Provisional tax is intended to assist taxpayers to meet their tax liabilities on an ongoing basis as opposed to paying a large amount once a year on assessment. The provisional tax paid will be offset against the final income tax that the individual has to pay for the year of assessment concerned.

The law states that every individual in South Africa needs to be registered at the Receiver of Revenue and is thereby given a tax number.
