I started working for an employer in April this year. I have been informed that my IRP5 will be issued end of next financial year. How will I submit my tax return if I haven't received this yet? I was self employed before starting at the new company and income then was below the threshold to have to submit a tax return.
You should always submit a tax return to SARS to make sure you are fully up to date. However this current filing season will not include income earned from April this year - that will only need to be filed next year so you do not need to worry about the IRP5.
