  • The tax rate reconciliation
  • The deferred tax proof – with a focus on temporary differences and IAS12 principles
  • The fixed asset proof
  • The SARS account reconciliation

 Each of these proofs and reconciliations is explained in a practical manner.  For each of the proofs or reconciliations, the theory to key adjustments is explained, but more importantly, participants will work through a number of worked examples which explain the application of the theory.


The course is broken down into 5 sessions. Each session is followed by a short assessment to test the knowledge gained.
