The section was amended to provide for a specific list of factors to be taken into account in deciding whether payment should be suspended.
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.
