Value-Added Tax Act, 1991 (Act No. 89 of 1991)

Part VI - Payment, Recovery and Refund Tax

40B. [Repealed] Liability of municipalities for tax and limitation of refunds

 

[Section 40B repealed by section 101 of Act No. 43 of 2014]

 

(1) This section applies in respect of the supply of goods or services on or before 31 March 2005 by any entity which at the time of that supply qualified as a "local authority" as defined prior to the deletion of that definition by the Small Business Amnesty and Amendment of Taxation Laws Act, 2006.

 

(2) Where the Commissioner on or before 31 March 2005 issued an assessment for an amount of tax or additional tax in respect of any supply of goods or services contemplated in subsection (1) to correct a prior incorrect application of the zero rate of tax in terms of section 11(2)(p) as it read on 31 March 2005 in respect of that supply, the Commissioner must, on written application, reduce that assessment to the extent that the amount of tax, additional tax, penalty or interest arose as a result of that correction and was not yet paid on that date as long as the reduced assessment will not result in a refund to that entity.

 

(3) The Commissioner may not after 31 March 2005 make any assessment to correct a prior incorrect application of the zero per cent rate of tax in terms of section 11(2)(p) as it read on 31 March 2005 in respect of any supply of goods or services contemplated in subsection (1).

 

(4) If a local authority incorrectly charged tax at the rate referred to in section 7(1) instead of the zero per cent rate of tax in terms of section 11(2)(p) as it read on 31 March 2005 in respect of any supply contemplated in subsection (1), the Commissioner may not refund any such tax or any penalty or interest that arose as a result of the late payment of such tax, paid by that local authority to the Commissioner.
