Taxpayers often find it difficult to understand what the requirements and practical considerations are around tax debt management. There also seems to be some confusion around which remedies are available for a disputed as opposed to an undisputed tax liability.

During this event Adv Christel van Wyk will define the distinction between a Suspension of Payment and a Compromise, using practical examples, and providing guidance on relevant case law. It is important for taxpayers and tax practitioners to use the correct procedure and to keep within the correct time frames to avoid running into trouble with SARS.
