Legalbrief Today, Issue 4785

Draft legislation to tighten governance at SARS will be tabled early next year, Parliament's Standing Committee on Finance heard from SARS and National Treasury yesterday, says a Fin24 report. Treasury's Ismail Momoniat told the committee that amendments would be considered to allow for clarification of the Tax Ombud's role and outline procedures for both the appointment and removal of a SARS Commissioner. This follows the dismissal of former SARS Commissioner Tom Moyane after the Nugent Commission of Inquiry's report found a range of governance failings, revenue collection weaknesses and non-compliance set in under his watch. Momoniat said the proposed legislative amendments would also include amendments to the South African Revenue Service Act and the Tax Administration Act.

One of the marketing tools I have discussed in a past article is hosting client events.  It is a waste of money, time and resources to host an event without planning it properly. The first step to a successful event is to make sure it is an event your identified audience would like to attend. Existing or prospective clients who are invited to an event should be curious, interested and see the value in attending.
