We deal with all aspects of South African and international tax and tax-related law, as well as ensuring SARS remains accountable for its administration of your tax matters. Our clients value our authoritative guidance, ethical services and professional solutions as well as our assurance of their tax compliance. This includes vital experience in facilitating SARS refunds, SARS voluntary disclosure programmes, employee remuneration and compensation structuring, and compliance.
We have carried out extensive work on VAT and customs, including legal settlement of SARS disputes, obtaining refunds and reversal of SARS rulings. Our corporate tax work includes proactive planning and contractual work on large or technically complex matters, dealing with external auditor queries, responding to letters of finding and generally rebutting matters on behalf of our clients.
Our well-balanced team of admitted attorneys, chartered accountants and compliance experts ensures complete client privilege in all tax dealings, and that our solutions achieve the optimal tax outcome while remaining fully compliant with fiscal law and statutory requirements. This same ethos informs our interactions with SARS, with whom we have a longstanding and cooperative relationship built on mutual respect, but equally drives our no-nonsense attitude when challenging questionable assessments and interpretations of law in Tax Court.
Our client base has seen significant, organic growth due to our reputation as a trusted advisor who values building strong, lasting relationships with customers who value a tax partner capable of navigating the long haul across a wide array of tax technical territory. We also appreciate that we are only as good as our last tax engagement and that maintaining the highest standard of service is non-negotiable. Recognising this philosophy in our conduct, our clients use and return to us by choice.
As a partner, we often act as a sounding board for customers, providing rapid feedback to on-the-spot queries. This helps their business to operate within the boundaries of good tax risk management with minimum administrative and compliance burdens but always as tax efficient as legally possible.
