What is sars?
The South African Revenue Service, or SARS, is responsible for collecting taxes in the country. As an independent agency established by the South African Revenue Service Act 34 of 1997, SARS administers the tax system and customs service. The goal of SARS is to create and manage a tax and customs system that encourages voluntary compliance, while also enforcing regulations when necessary. Ultimately, SARS aims to be a respected and trustworthy organization with integrity.
The tax system is considered a valuable asset of the nation as it plays an important role in building the country. We, as workers in this field, always follow the code of conduct and principles of SARS values, which include maintaining taxpayer confidentiality, showing integrity and professionalism, providing exemplary public service, and utilizing data and evidence for insights. Our strategy for encouraging taxpayers to comply with their obligations is based on three principles: informing them of their responsibilities, making it easy for them to fulfill them, and taking action against those who break the law.
