The annual Budget Speech delivered by the minister of finance is often viewed with a healthy dose of foreboding by payroll administrators across the country. Sage VIP, regarded as an expert in the field of HR and payroll, will thus embark on a countrywide road show during March and April 2013 at various venues throughout South Africa to provide guidance and support to payroll and tax practitioners and financial personnel. The seminar will be presented by Rob Cooper, a payroll tax expert at Sage VIP - previously known as Softline VIP and part of the Sage Group.

"The seminar is regarded by many as a definitive guide to the changes in payroll and tax legislation, and we endeavour to present it in a practical and interactive manner that does not focus on the legal aspects alone. The presentation will also aim at communicating future trends that can impact on payroll and HR offices," said Cooper.

Topics to be covered at the Payroll and Tax Seminar include:

* A comprehensive review of the 2013/14 Budget Speech
* Proposed changes and new legislation in tax administration
* Possible impact of changes on businesses
* How to be compliant with the legislation and remain one step ahead as a company

Attendees will also take home a comprehensive yet practical workbook for later reference.
