We have a Company based in South-Africa but all the work (professional engineering services) we do is for a Company Based in Tanzania. At the end of each service provided to this company we Invoice them and when they pay us they deduct 15% Withholding tax. Each year we receive Withholding Tax Certificates from this Company which we then submit to SARS when our accountant does the Company Tax Return via e-filing. The Withholding Tax Certificates we submitted to SARS this year was for the value of $40 000.00. Why does our Company not receive any refunds on the Withholding Tax that we pay?

The tax paid should be offset against any taxes you owe South Africa. Your accountant should be taking this into account.
