Members experienced problems with the SARS website and Google Chrome. Members aren't able to scroll down on some of the pages with Google Chrome and the links to the RSS feeds are broken if they use Google Chrome.
SARS has however investigated the issue with scrolling in Chrome and
have managed to fix the issue. Unfortunately, Google decided to remove the RSS
functionality from their browser in favour of ‘streamlining’ the browser and
allowing users to customise their browser to their liking. The only way
that Chrome can handle the RSS feeds correctly is to install an add-on which
can be found on the Chrome Web Store. Additionally SARS has decided to reinstate the "What’s
New” page and associated RSS Feed, which should provide more information
regarding the changes made on a daily basis.
Section 240A of the Tax Administration Act, 2011 (as amended) requires that all tax practitioners register with a recognized controlling body before 1 July 2013. It is a criminal offense to not register with both a recognized controlling body and SARS.
