Tax Deadlines

The South African tax year falls between the 1st March and 28th/29th February of the following year. The annual return is due during filing season, which falls after the end of the tax year and is announced by SARS each year.

Depending on the type of taxpayer you are, your deadlines may be extended. See provisional taxpayers.

It's vital to know when each tax year starts and when your filing is due, so you know which gains fall into what tax year.
