Exchange Control Special Voluntary Disclosure Programme 

The Exchange Control Special Voluntary Disclosure Programme (SVDP) deadline was at midnight on Thursday 31 August 2017.
Prospective exchange control SVDP applicants and their authorised representatives should note that, where it is impossible to obtain all requisite exchange control SVDP supporting documentation in time, the exchange control SVDP Unit will accept as an attachment to the exchange control SVDP application, which is still required to be submitted on or before 31 August 2017 via eFiling, a written undertaking from the applicant or his/her authorised representative to furnish the outstanding supporting documentation via the email address as soon as possible after 31 August 2017, but not later than 30 September 2017. No further requests to extend the aforementioned period will be considered.
Please note that when the outstanding supporting documents are submitted to the above-mentioned email address, reference should be made in the email to the case number and the SVDP reference number that appears on the electronic acknowledgement of receipt of the SVDP application issued by the South African Revenue Service on the client's eFiling profile.
We wish to thank the exchange control SVDP applicants and their authorised representatives for their cooperation during the SVDP window period.
