Individual Tax Module | How do I cater for a transfer between Approved Funds on a Lumpsum RA Withdrawal?

Published:  24/11/2017
My taxpayer has transferred funds between Retirement Annuity Funds during the course of the year. An IRP5 has been issued by the old fund. How do I indicate within ITM that no tax should be deducted for the transfer, as the funds were transferred directly into another RA and not to the taxpayer? 

  Answer:

When receiving the IRP5 from SARS from the old fund, ITM does not receive any information from SARS to indicate that a transfer between approved funds was performed for that lumpsum withdrawal. Because of this; unless manually input into the correct place in ITM, the income will reflect as taxable.
  • When downloading the IRP5’s from SARS within ITM, the IRP5 from the old fund will be downloaded and will be visible within your IRP5 section.
  • The income from the lump sum withdrawal will be indicated within the IRP5 under the relevant income code.
  • Please follow these steps to mark the transfer to approved funds as non-taxable
