SARS Commissioner vs Tax Practitioners: Do your due diligence

During the April 2024 SARS Revenue Results Announcement Media Conference, the SARS Commissioner brought to light concerning observations regarding non-compliance and delinquent behaviour by tax practitioners.

By drawing a direct correlation between non-compliant tax practitioners and their “clients [who] are equally delinquent,” his remarks underscored the critical importance for taxpayers to carefully assess the quality and compliance of the professionals they engage to handle their tax affairs.
