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.


The Act requires that a minimum academic and practical requirments be set to register with a controlling body. Click here for the minimum requirements of SAIT.
