OWING MONEY TO SARS?
9 March 2018 – SARS has appointed eight external debt collection agencies to recoup some of the R16.6 billion debt owed to SARS. The objective of the appointment is to enhance revenue collection by outsourcing the recovery of older and relatively small debt. The contract is with immediate effect until 28 February 2019.
At present, over 2.3 million taxpayers and traders owe SARS just under R150-billion.
The agencies that have been appointed are:
CSS Credit Solution Services (Pty) Ltd
ITC Business Administrators (Pty) Ltd
Medaco Capital Services (Pty) Ltd
New Integrated Credit Solutions (Pty) Ltd
Norman Bisset & Associates Group (Pty) Ltd
Revenue Consulting (Pty) Ltd
Transactional Capital Recoveries (Pty) Ltd
Van De Venter Mojapelo (Pty) Ltd.
Taxpayers and traders with outstanding accounts can therefore expect communication from the appointed agencies.
Those with queries are encouraged to contact the SARS Contact Centre at 0800 00 7277 (0800 00 SARS) or send SARS feedback here.
