Serial fraudster J Arthur Brown’s former attorney has escaped with a R200 000 fine after being convicted of tax fraud. Muhammed Rashad Khan (70) pleaded guilty to 468 charges of tax fraud. During sentencing, the court said Khan’s crimes were serious as they undermine SARS, but his personal circumstances should also be taken into account, notes Netwerk 24. He is the father of three adult children and three minors. Khan failed to submit several tax returns between 2006 and 2018. He didn’t file VAT returns between 2006 and 2015, didn’t pay over the PAYE deductions from his employees, didn’t file personal income tax returns and failed to pay over UIF contributions on behalf of his employees.
