Discontinuation of SARS support for unregistered tax practitioners

Due to the large number of unqualified tax practitioners, SARS has insisted on a new registration process. Tax practitioners are now required to be registered with a recognised controlling body (such as SAICA) and with SARS. Recognised tax practitioners have been given a new number by SARS. 

Practitioners who have not been given a new number will no longer be helped by SARS or be allowed to file returns on behalf of their clients. 

If you use a tax practitioner make sure he/she has a new tax practitioner SARS registration number.
