24 August 2022 – The South African Revenue Service (SARS) has noted the Labour Court judgement of 22 August 2022 on the matter between Mashilo and Seremane v the Commissioner of SARS. The matter relates to an incident that dates back to 2015 during the tenure of the former Commissioner.
After studying the judgement, SARS, on the advice of counsel, has opted to note an appeal against the above judgment. SARS believes that the court made a material error in arriving at its conclusion. In this regard, SARS believes that another court will come to a different conclusion given what is at issue.
SARS will not be commenting further beyond this statement.
