Members are reminded that the SARS Call Centre will only assist practitioners with information that cannot be accessed via eFiling. This is an effort to minimise unnecessary calls and appointments at the practitioner unit. This decision was made at a stakeholder meeting, held in 2013, between SARS and the attending RCBs.
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.
