SARS COVID-19 COLLECTION DRIVE
ARE YOU PROTECTED BY LEGAL PRIVILEGE?
Feeling nervous about your tax compliance following SARS’ drastic media statement on 5 May 2020?
A shrinking tax base means SARS is turning over every penny and it is likely we will see far more audits this tax season.
If you want to approach SARS to regularize your affairs before SARS comes knocking, your tax practitioner becomes your most important ally. When choosing a tax practitioner, the most important question taxpayers should ask is if they come with legal privilege. If your tax practitioner is not an attorney, you are not protected by legal privilege and SARS can compel the disclosure of information you shared with your tax practitioner.
You need to engage a provider who guarantees legal privilege to fix historic non-compliance and is able to engage SARS head-on. Our multidisciplinary team of tax attorneys, assisted by chartered accountants, has a proven track record of following a strict legal and compliant approach with solution-based thinking to help correct your past non-compliance. Working with our attorneys also guarantees legal professional privilege which means your matter will be treated as confidential.
