If you exceed the annual and lifetime limits, there are penalties (SARS will charge you a 40% tax on all contributions that exceed these amounts – so don’t over contribute). You will have to monitor your contributions across all tax-free savings accounts and make sure all your contributions amount to only R 33 000 per tax year.
Any amount that you withdraw from your account will count towards your annual and lifetime limit. If you have contributed
R 33 000 and withdraw
R 15 000 in the same year, you cannot deposit any more funds as you have already used your R 33 000 contribution allowance. It’s all about the contribution limit, so withdraw funds wisely!
To make the process straightforward, SatrixNOW automatically issues you with a tax-free savings account (TFSA) when you open a standard account. No additional application forms, no verification process...
All you need to do is select the TFSA from your drop-down menu (view an example here) and then make your tax-free investment in three easy steps.
