The Institute is pleased to announce that Keith Engel will join SAIT in January as the Deputy Chief Executive.

As the former National Treasury Chief Director for Legal Tax Policy design, and most recently a partner in the Africa tax practice of EY, Keith brings with him vast experience from the private and public sector. Notably during his tenure at National Treasury, Keith was instrumental in shaping tax policy design in the years following on the Katz Commission on Inquiry.

In his capacity as Deputy Chief Executive at SAIT, Keith will be responsible for advocating the national tax policy agenda from a civil society perspective while also leading the technical team internally in serving the interests of members.

Established in 2007, SAIT has grown to become the largest of the SARS recognised controlling bodies in South Africa and as such plays the leading role in advising government on tax technical and policy matters through its network of specialist committees and research associates. This appointment will further elevate the technical capacity of SAIT for the benefit members and the tax profession.

Welcome to Keith!
