South African Accountants Support Call To Regulate Tax Advisers

The Business Day news service reported on Tuesday that the Institute's Chairman, Beric Croome has called for a meeting with the SARS Commissioner, Pravin Gordhan in order to further discuss the issue, and has promised the tax authorities that SAICA will 'proactively support' the initiative to review the country's tax laws in order to better protect South African taxpayers.
