Personal Income Tax is relevant to salaried employees and self-employed individuals. In this comprehensive session we will take a 360-degree view of the issues affecting individual taxpayers. We will also deal with how items should be reflected and declared on the ITR12. The session will be practical and case study based.
In this comprehensive session we will unpack and explore the following key questions and issues:
- How should non-taxable receipts and exempt receipts be treated?
