ITR12 and Provisional Tax, how does it all work?

Hi Tim, I am registered as a provisional tax payer as I run a sole prop but I am also registered for PAYE as I am employed by a CC I am a member of and I draw a salary. The ITR12 takes into consideration only the PAYE and UIF paid but not the provisional tax paid. Will SARS make the connection that the amount showing as owed on the ITR12 for the provisional tax has already been paid when I submitted my IRP6's? The amounts are correct (what the ITR12 says I owe and what I actually paid as provisional are the same).

SARS has the records of all provisional tax paid which is linked to your tax number. So when you get assessed they will take this into account and most likely result in an assessment where you owe nothing.
