Voluntary Disclosure in South Africa, 2nd edition

Voluntary Disclosure in South Africa, 2nd edition

Voluntary disclosure in the South African context often involves two processes that go hand-in-hand, namely 1) the voluntary disclosure of tax defaults; and 2) the regularization of Exchange Control (“Excon”) contraventions.


This edition showcases the differences between VDP and SVDP for taxpayers and the criteria for VDP relief for taxes administered by SARS (excluding Customs and Excise Duties), penalties and procedures and qualifying criteria

Why KPMG South Africa?

  • Registered as the preferred service provider for certain Swiss banks
  • Relationships with the SARS VDP unit and SARB Financial Surveillance Dept.
  • Deep experience with relation to earlier VDP programmes and how SARS and SARB approach such applications
