South Africa’s Tax Dispute Revolution: A Leap Towards Fairness and Efficiency

In a move set to redefine the landscape of tax dispute resolution in South Africa, National Treasury has unveiled a groundbreaking proposal during the 2024 Budget Speech. The proposal aims to introduce alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) proceedings at the objection phase of tax disputes. This strategic shift is a promising step in the right direction in transforming the tax dispute resolution landscape, which would usher in a new era of fairness, efficiency, and cooperation in resolving tax disputes.
