SARS audits are unavoidable.


SARS audits are unavoidable. You’ll have to deal with them. In this webinar, Nico Theron will provide valuable insights on how to handle SARS audits. Too often, miscommunication between taxpayers and SARS leads to unnecessary additional assessments. This miscommunication can be avoided if the purpose of the audit and SARS’ requests are truly understood, and the correct mindset is adopted.

Webinar Content

Nico will touch on taxpayers’ rights during an audit and how infringements of these rights can be addressed. The fact that SARS can and indeed must conduct audits does not mean the taxpayer is completely vulnerable and simply at the mercy of the auditor.

Competencies developed in this webinar

After attending this webinar, you should be able to:

  • Identify what SARS is asking of the taxpayer.
  • Understand how to respond to queries to avoid unnecessary additional assessments.
  • Understand taxpayers’ rights during an audit and how to address breaches of those rights.
