Apocalypse of Automation

SARS’ Drive to Strengthen Tax Treatment

In its relentless pursuit of tax compliance, SARS has launched a series of initiatives aimed at streamlining tax processes through various automation enhancements. This includes the strengthening of tax treatment on cross-border transactions, and additional scrutiny imposed on the claiming of refunds and tax benefits.

Homing in on Small, Medium, and Micro Enterprises (SMMEs) and High Wealth Individuals (HWIs), SARS is employing sophisticated strategies to ensure that no stone is left unturned in the tenets of tax fairness and transparency. The nuanced challenges posed by these two distinct groups highlight the necessity for tailored approaches and robust enforcement strategies.
