Compulsory VAT registration:

As soon as the business turnover exceeds R1 million for a 12 month period or as soon as it become likely the business is going to exceed the R1 million turnover, the business is legally obliged to register for VAT. In other words when your turnover is R83,400 per month, you are going to reach a turnover of R1 million in a 12 month cycle. Practically a cycle is a financial year.
