A legal update has been issued regarding the reduction of interest and administrative penalty rules, which we are hereby reinterpreted for ease of reference:
It is now stated that the Commissioner may discount penalties on interest and administrative fees if he is satisfied that the tax due within the prescribed period was not paid for a reason they deem valid, however saying that another person was meant to perform the task does not qualify as a valid reason. This is applicable to the Value Added Tax Act, the Customs and Excise Tax Act and the Value Added Tax Act, 1994.
