SARS is committed to working with Diplomatic Missions to improve understanding of the tax landscape in South Africa. We believe in building effective partnerships to resolve issues of tax administration to improve voluntary compliance.
We are aware that Diplomatic Missions have locally recruited personnel who are South African residents and citizens who are required to adhere to their tax obligations. SARS has in place a business unit that deals with Diplomatic Missions and can be contacted at [email protected]
Here you will find the latest information and updates from SARS to assist you in meeting your tax obligations and thereby increasing the culture of tax compliance.
