25 July 2022 – Emigration withdrawal changes
The tax directive system currently includes a validation that results in tax directive applications, with the ‘Emigration withdrawal’ reason where the date of accrual is on or after 1 March 2022, being rejected. The tax directive validation has been subsequently removed. This means that the accrual date for tax directive applications with the reason ‘Emigration withdrawal’ can be a date after 1 March 2022 but the following supporting documents must be attached to the tax directive application submitted through eFiling to prevent the tax directive being rejected:
The emigration application (MP336(b)) with a date stamp before 1 March 2021; and
The letter issued by the Authorised dealer must indicate that the emigration is recognised for purposes of exchange control before 1 March 2022 (SARB Approval date).
