SARS has provided a summary of all VAT Mutual Administrative Assistance Agreements.

The purpose of the agreements regarding mutual administrative assistance between the Revenue authorities of two different countries is to -

  • enable the authorities to exchange information
  • provide each other with technical assistance
  • undertake surveillance and investigations together, with, and on behalf of each other
  • co-operate with each other in order to enhance the efficiency of their operations

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.
