GENERIC DIESEL REBATE LOGBOOK
members are no doubt aware, there has been some confusion regarding
what specific information and in which format SARS requires growers to
supply them in order for them to comply with the regulations and hence
obtain the rebate. This has led to a situation whereby the large number
of disputes have arisen. To address this SARS is doing the following:
amendments to Section 6 of the Customs and Excise Act retrospectively
for two years to accommodate the settling of these disputes;
- holding a series of Provincial information dissemination sessions on the topic;
- providing further guidelines for Schedule 6, including a "logbook template" and a guide as to how to use it.
a request made by FSA, we have received a draft generic "logbook
template" from SARS's Legal and Policy Division which comes in two parts
- one dealing with fuel storage and the other with fuel usage. This is
attached so as to assist members in complying with the regulations.
SARS has expressed its interest in receiving feedback from FSA members
on any difficulties experienced in completing the attached logbook and
any suggestions that they may have to improve it. Please send these
comments to firstname.lastname@example.org and I shall collate them and pass onto SARS in due
Once the guidelines and logbook have been finalised they will be published on SARS's website (www.sars.gov.za).
