Late submission

I have not yet submitted my previous tax year (2011) tax return and would like to do it now together with my 2012 tax return. I have seen that SARS penalises late returns by R250 per month. Is there any way to get them to be a bit more lenient on this penalty for my late submission, or is my only option to face the music?

Best advice is to submit both returns now, depending on the system you may not get fined at all. We have noticed that this is a "threat" by SARS, but isn't always imposed!
