Tax

CRA offers the following Tax Practitioner services that range from advice to registrations to full tax compliance:

  • Registration as a Taxpayer Registration as a Vat Vendor (where applicable)
  • Acting as the Treasurer/Public officer
  • Submitting Provisional Tax returns (where applicable and no longer for community schemes)
  • Submitting Income Tax returns
  • Registration on e – filing

Call us now so that one of our knowledgable tax specialists can advise you further and send you a fee estimate for your scheme.

Forensic

Do you feel that your scheme is being mismanaged or that some financial aspect is amiss?

CRA can do a full forensic investigation for you.

In most cases, a report is required to comment on whether there has been any misappropriation of funds of the scheme by the managing agent, the trustees and/or any other persons responsible for the management, control and financial affairs of the scheme.

Let the CRA team investigate for you!

  • We will conduct full interviews with the persons concerned.
  • We will submit reports on our findings.
  • We will register complaints to the EAAB on your behalf

Auditing

Did you know that CRA can act as the Accounting officer for your scheme?

The appointment of an Accounting Officer is required in terms of annexure 8 of the Regulations to the Sectional Titles Act, Act No. 95 of 1986. This appointment is limited to schemes where the units are not more than 9 or management rule 40 has been amended to allow for the appointment of an accounting officer.

Functions and duties:

  • Prepare the Annual Financial Statements with information provided by the scheme according to IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards). Note: It is the trustees'/directors'/members' responsibility to maintain proper accounting records. Such accounting records should adequately present all receipts, payments, income, purchases, expenses, assets, liabilities and reserves. The Auditor/Accounting officer is not required to prepare the financial statement but will do so on request/instruction.
  • Determine that the Annual financial statements agree with the accounting records of the scheme.
  • Taxation (see under tax)
