Here are some of the services we offer:
Application for the Suspension of Payment of a Tax debt- SARS often has the approach of pay now or else, with many taxpayers being forced to pay debts where valid objections could be raised. The TAA makes provision for the suspension of payment of a debt, where an objection is to be lodged. In this manner, the obligation to pay is suspended, until the adjudication of the objection and/or the application for suspension.
Application for Compromise of Tax Debts- Where the taxpayer is under financial difficulty, and meets certain criteria, application can be made on the taxpayer’s behalf, for the compromise of tax debt.
Application for the deferral of Payment of tax Debts (Instalment Payments)- Where the taxpayer has cashflow problems, and is only able to pay by way of instalments, and meets certain criteria, application can be made on the taxpayer’s behalf.
Application for remittance of Penalties- Where taxpayers inadvertently fail to file returns, or otherwise non-compliant and amass penalties, application can be made for the remission of penalties where certain criteria are met.
Application for Tax Clearance- Application for tax clearance can be done on behalf of taxpayer. Even where arrangements have been made for deferral of payments, or a tax debt has been compromised, or an objection has been lodged, a taxpayer still has a right to be issued with a tax clearance certificate, which correctly reflects the taxpayer’s tax compliance status.
Application for Access to Information- In addition application can be made on behalf of the taxpayer, for access to information, which is in SARS possession. Often, SARS holds information, such as records which would be relevant, or helpful in determining substantive issues, such as whether tax is indeed payable, and procedural issues, whether SARS has followed correct and lawful procedures.
Application for Review of Administrative Action- Where SARS arbitrarily dismisses without properly adjudicating or applying its mind to applications such as those mentioned above, such decisions are taken on review to High Court, thereby ensuring Just Administrative Action.
