Hi TimMy assessment letter says "Net amount refundable under this assessment after allowable creditsCompliance"and then shows a negative amount. Technically this would mean I owe SARS as a negative 'refund' means the oposite of a refund but I am not sure what they intend it to mean.What should I take this to mean?Thanks!
This means you are due a refund, the negative means a refund despite the very confusing SARS language. The negative amount is because they communicate in terms of their books, so you represent a negative asset, a liability - so they owe you money.
