SARS Unveils New Tax Dispute Resolution Process

by Robert Lee, Tax-News.com, London

05 November 2002


The South African Revenue Service (SARS) on Friday issued a discussion document detailing a proposed new, more efficient dispute resolution process.

Speaking last week, SARS Commissioner, Pravin Gordhan explained that the planned changes came about as the result of complaints from taxpayers and tax professionals regarding the length of time - sometimes a number of years, according to Mr Gordhan - that it has taken to resolve tax disputes in the past.

'The new rules are more detailed about which processes (are) to be followed, and are driven by time limits within which a matter must be attended to,' the SARS Commissioner explained, adding that: 'They make provision for alternative dispute resolution procedures and settlement discussions to allow for the resolution of tax disputes outside the litigation arena.'

The deadline for comment from interested parties is November 29, and the implementation date for the new procedures has been scheduled for March 1, 2003, according to the Revenue Service.
