DD4 - DURBAN: SA VAT Act & Exports plus the UCR system


This is a full-day, compact 7 hour course covering the complexities of the New Export Regulation R.316 with regard to exporting from SA, as well as the fundamentals of zero-rated export supplies.

HOW TO provisionally BOOK: Step one– on the right-hand side of the page you’ll see a place to insert your email address. The next ‘page’ captures your details and the page after, your company’s. This is the ONLY time you need do this. You are then sent a ‘link’ by email (this is an anti-spam measure).
Step two - you click the email link and this takes you to a summary of your booking with the opportunity for you to amend, add or delete delegates. Step three - once you are happy, you click ‘send pro-forma’ and that is the provisional booking taken care of. Your ‘accounts’ will receive the pro-forma invoice and the delegate will receive provisional notification of the booking.

Bookings are only confirmed on payment.

Thereafter, all you will ever need to do is insert your email address on the right-hand panel as above, and get the anti-spam ‘link’ by email; click on that link and select ‘send pro-forma’. So it is: email address, click the email link, click the pro-forma request – one, two, three finished.


The course also addresses export Exchange Control issues around the UCR system.

Indirect exports are in most instances subject to VAT at the standard rate. However, there are opportunities where the vendor may elect to zero-rate the supply of the movable goods, subject to certain requirements being met. Importantly, the requirements for documentary compliance are covered in detail.

We will also look at when the vendor may raise their invoices in foreign currencies and when they may not.

This course is based in part on the hundreds of questions and actual problems 'work-shopped' with past delegates since 1997 and the event is interactive, creating an excellent forum for questions & answers.

The course fees include an electronic copies of the presentation material, VAT Interpretation Notes and Guides and the latest Exchange Control Manuals, PLUS a hard-back copy of the 2nd Edition of Trade Questions & Answers. The delegate also receives the latest SA VAT wall chart.

Course costs include lunch and certificates of attendance are issued for this course.

This course is also available as an in-house event;
