The SARS Dispute Resolution Process: Everything you need to know if you don't agree with SARS' assessments
Have you ever been in a situation where you disagreed with an assessment SARS gave you?
Before I ask you what you did about it (if you did anything at all), did SARS:
- Request the specific information it wanted from you for the audit;
- Keep you informed of the progress of the audit; and
- Notify you within 21 business days of its findings before it raised the assessment?
Your answer I suspect, is 'no'. And I'm not surprised. SARS usually doesn't do this. But Section 42 of the Tax Administration Act says it should!
So what does this mean for you?
It means you couldn't exercise your right to respond to SARS' findings. So SARS takes your 'silence' as agreement, and goes straight to an assessment. But if you had responded, you could've avoided the assessment altogether!
Having worked in Vat
for over 24 years, I know SARS' tricks inside and out.
So I'm going to show you how to object to SARS' assessment in four easy steps. And, I'll also tell you what to do if SARS tries to quash your objection or doesn't follow the rules.
