Dear Practitioner, The Tax Administration Act, 2011, has been amended to require tax
practitioners to register with a recognised controlling body by 1 July 2013, in
addition to the existing requirement that they register with SARS.
Please note that appointments will only be made for practitioners
who are registered with SARS. If you are still in the process of finalising
your registration with SARS, kindly submit your proof of registration with a
Recognised Controlling Body to the office where you wish to make your
appointment at. Practitioners who have finalised their registration will be
verified electronically via their Practitioner Reference Number.
Should you have queries please contact the Tax Practitioners Contact
Centre (0860 12 12 19)/ 0800007277
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.
