South African Revenue Service (SARS) Commissioner, Edward Kieswetter, says they are making steady progress in improving its capability to detect and respond to non-compliance.

Last year, the revenue collector detected more than 26 000 individuals who have had economic activity in excess of R1 million but were not registered for tax.

This as SARS has launched the tax filing season for individuals and trusts.

Kieswetter says over the past year they have also accelerated efforts to deal with internal corruption.

“To date, SARS has received 1 565 tax returns with home office expenses claimed of which 1 306 has been stopped for verification audit and the current risk identification rate is 50% in this area. We want to caution taxpayers to correctly and truthfully complete their returns as this behaviour will be detected,” explains Kieswetter.
