The South African Revenue Service (SARS) commissioner Edward Kieswetter said: “The need for many employees to work remotely has been necessitated by the Covid-19 pandemic in an unprecedented manner. He called on taxpayers to carefully consider claims for work from home expenses. “It is important to note that the law in this regard has not changed. We really want to caution taxpayers to correctly and truthfully complete their returns, as this behaviour will be detected.”

SARS warned that whilst all claims for home office expenses may be subject to further verification or audit by the tax body, it is important to note that there is a high likelihood that a taxpayer who claims home office expenses for the first time will be selected for verification or audit.
