Tax practitioners were recently placed on notice by the Minister of Finance, Pravin Gordhan, in his budget speech when he pointed out that the role of tax practitioners and other intermediaries will come under scrutiny. The South African Revenue Service (SARS) raised the issue of registration of tax practitioners for the first time in the Budget Review of 2002 and said the regulation of tax practitioners was required to "promote better compliance and ensure that taxpayers receive advice consistent with the tax legislation" and to ensure "appropriate sanctions in the event of non-compliance with tax legislation".
