LETTER OF DEMAND FROM SARS, WHAT NOW?

The government lockdown implemented in response to the Covid-19 pandemic has not suspended the South African Revenue Service (SARS) from collecting on tax debts. SARS continues to take collection steps against taxpayers, including withdrawing funds from bank accounts, garnisheeing salaries and threatening personal liability of company representatives.

To prevent SARS from taking any of the aforementioned collection steps, it is imperative that a tax specialist be engaged to prepare a Request for Suspension of Payment.
