Local startup TaxTim, that was featured on Bandwidth Blog, now offers South African tax payers the ability to file their tax returns in English, Afrikaans, isiXhosa and isiZulu.
TaxTim, a new web based digital tax assistant aimed at young professionals, is easy and fast and even makes filing your tax returns an enjoyable experience.
For the first time ever, 63% of South Africans can now do their own tax returns in their home language. And so, TaxTim is now the only tax assistant in South Africa that has a multi-language offering.
Previously, the breakthrough online assistant was only able to assist its customers in English. The core product of the tool has now been translated to reach more of the diverse South African market, including a step-by-step guide for getting a tax number and using eFiling, all the content you would need to navigate the tax system and file your return as well as all the essential tax definitions.
“Tax is hard enough to understand in your own language. We are delighted to announce that TaxTim has now made it that much easier for the majority of South Africans to achieve tax compliancy,” says co-founder Evan Robinson.
TaxTim used the South African Translators Institute (SATI) to find three qualified and experienced freelance translators to accurately translate the tool into isiXhosa, isiZulu and Afrikaans.
