BOOK REVIEW | How to get a SARS refund for small businesses


Increase your chances of getting a refund from SARS!

By Daniel Baines

The tax implications of running a business are not widely taught in the South African education system. This is why many entrepreneurs are not well equipped to deal with the taxation side of their businesses in an informed manner.

The information in this book provides you with a basic understanding of the different types of legal entities that are available to you to run your business, and what the tax implications are for each type of entity.

Small-business tax

How to Get a SARS Refund for Small Businesses explains small-business tax. In easy-to-understand language, and with many practical examples that will allow those who have never studied the subject to understand tax rules quickly and easily, this book provides aspiring entrepreneurs with extra confidence to take that first step on their business adventure, while helping current business owners gain a better understanding of how their business operates.

The book covers different types of tax that a small-business owner may encounter, including income tax, VAT, pay-as-you-earn (PAYE) and dividends tax.

It also details how different types of entities are taxed, such as a private company compared with a sole proprietor, and can assist business owners in deciding whether they should establish a sole proprietorship, company or partnership.

While the book aims to bridge the current education gap that exists for entrepreneurs and small-business owners who were not taught about tax in school or at university, it will also assist students who are studying entrepreneurship courses at college or university.
