1 The phasing out of standard income tax on employees (SITE)

2 1. Introduction 1 March 2011 saw the start of the phasing out of Standard Income Tax on Employees (SITE). SITE taxpayers who received more than one Employee Income Tax certificate [IRP5/IT3(a)] resulting in a combined income of more than the tax threshold for that tax year please refer to section 3 will now be required to submit an Income Tax return (ITR12) as of the 2012 year of assessment onwards. Tax returns must be submitted during the Personal Income Tax (PIT) Filing Season which commences 1 July each year. 2. What is SITE? SITE is a component of the Pay-As-You-Earn (PAYE) method of paying Income Tax and is a final withholding tax on the first R of your net remuneration deducted by an employer. Net remuneration is any amount of income paid or payable to you, for example: Salary (which will appear as source code 3601 on your Employee Income Tax certificate [IRP5/ IT3(a)]) Pension (source code 3603) Bonus (source code 3605) etc. Less allowable deductions, for example: Pension fund contributions (source code 4001/4002) Retirement annuity fund contributions (source code 4006/4007) Medical expenses (source code 4005) Income protection policy contributions (source code 4018) All taxpayers whose net remuneration or annual equivalent did not exceed R were subject to SITE only and, therefore, were not required to submit an Income Tax Return (ITR12). 3. The tax thresholds The tax thresholds are: For the 2012 year of assessment (1 March February 2012) Age Tax threshold Below 65 years of age R Over 65 and below 75 of age R Over 75 of age R

3 For the 2013 year of assessment: Age Tax threshold Below 65 years of age R Over 65 and below 75 of age R Over 75 of age R The changes explained The SITE system is now being phased out because the tax collection system has been modernised and administrative processes improved over the years which enables the South African Revenue Service (SARS) to quickly and effectively process a taxpayer s submission to SARS. Furthermore, the Income Tax threshold (R for the 2012 year of assessment), for taxpayers younger than 65 years of age, is approaching the SITE limit of R To ease the impact on affected taxpayers (who now have to submit an Income Tax Return), a phasing-out process over the next two years of assessment has been introduced. Administrative relief measures are provided for to limit any potential hardship to affected taxpayers. Taxpayers who received more than one IRP5/IT3(a), from which only SITE (source code 4101) has been deducted, will now be liable to pay Income Tax for the first time on their combined income. The Income Tax payable will be at a reduced amount which will be calculated as follows: For the 2012 year of assessment you will pay the calculated SITE amount and one third (1/3) of the additional tax calculated For the 2013 year of assessment you will pay the calculated SITE amount and two thirds (2/3) of the additional tax calculated As of the 2014 year of assessment you will be liable for the full tax amount calculated. 5. Illustrative examples year of assessment Mr Taxpayer, who is under the age of 65, receives two IRP5/IT3(a) certificates for the 2012 year of assessment (1 March February 2012). He makes contributions of: R1 200 to a pension fund R3 500 to a retirement annuity fund R to a medical scheme in respect of himself and one dependant.

4 His normal tax due to be paid will be calculated as follows: IRP5/IT3(a) received 1 2 Assessment Amount [Combined IRP5/IT3(a)s] Remuneration received 77, , , Less: SITE allowable deductions 17, , Pension fund contributions 1, , Retirement annuity fund contributions 2, , Medical scheme contributions 14, , Net remuneration 59, , , Normal tax as per tax rates 10, , , Less: Primary rebate 10, , , Normal tax payable - - 5, Normal tax payable 5, Less: SITE payable - Normal tax liability 5, Less: Phasing-out relief of 2/3 for 2012 year of assessment Normal tax liability to be paid to SARS for the 2012 year of assessment 5,967 X 2/3 3, , year of assessment Mr Taxpayer, who is under the age of 65, receives two IRP5/IT3(a) certificates for the 2013 year of assessment (1 March February 2013). He makes contributions of: R4 000 to a pension fund R2 400 to a retirement annuity fund R to a medical scheme in respect of himself and one dependant. His normal tax due to be paid will be calculated as follows: IRP5/IT3(a) received 1 2 Assessment Amount [Combined IRP5/IT3(a)s] Remuneration received 65, , ,000.00

How do I obtain an Income Tax Return (ITR12)? You can obtain an Income Tax Return (ITR12) from 1 July by: Registering as an efiler on where you can build your own return Calling the SARS Contact Centre on SARS (7277) Visiting your nearest SARS branch. 7. Will employers need to update their payroll systems? The phasing out of SITE will have no effect on payroll systems for the next two years of assessment (2012 & 2013). Employers will continue calculating SITE as per the current methods up to the end of February From 1 March 2013 (2014 year of assessment) employers will no longer have to calculate and withhold SITE from taxpayers remuneration.
