SAIT’s new Tax Executive Suite was launched at a Tax gala dinner at the Sandton City Holiday Inn on Tuesday night (14 May). The Tax Executive Suite will provide a home within SAIT for tax directors and tax executives. The suite will further advance the tax executive’s insight into best tax practices and will allow for interaction between the National Treasury, SARS and the OECD and tax executives to take place.

The launch of the suite was attended by top tax executives from ABSA, Deloitte and Vodacom among many other prominent South African companies. Ruda Landman presented the event and a keynote address was delivered by Keith Engel from the National Treasury. SAIT also took the opportunity to honour icons of South African tax who have made significant contributions to the country’s taxation landscape. Honorary fellowship awards were extended to David Meyerowitz, Aubrey Silke, Judge Dennis Davis, Professor Michael Katz, and Professor Duncan Bentley.

A live performance by the contemporary instrumental group Sterling EQ set the tone for the event and for the launch of the suite which will cater to the executive who is negotiating through a fast-paced, multinational-business terrain. With base erosion and profit shifting likely to re­main high on the political agenda of the G20, the role of the tax executive in building links between the tax department, the business as a whole and revenue authorities globally, is be­coming increasingly critical. It is in further strengthening these links that the Tax Executive Suite will be preeminent.

In order to qualify to become part of the Tax Executive Suite, applicants must have a minimum of five years corporate tax experi­ence and hold a position in the tax management of a commercial organisation. Click here to find out more about the Tax Executive Suite.
