Description

SAIBA was awarded the status of Recognised Controlling Body (RCB) in terms of Section 240A(2) of the Tax Administration Act on 27 May 2021 by SARS, meaning SAIBA tax practitioner licenses enable members to register with SARS as a tax practitioner.

SAIBA tax licenses demonstrate the competency level of a SAIBA designation holder to either compile or advise on tax related matters, and assess the practitioner’s commitment to providing ethical tax services. SAIBA offers 2 licenses:

  • Licensed Tax Practitioner: Compiler
  • Licensed Tax Practitioner: Advisor

  • preparing, reviewing and submitting tax returns,
  • reviewing completed tax records,
  • verifying and availing source documents,
  • submitting tax objections, and
  • managing SARS queries, audits and assessments prior to judicial involvement.

SAIBA’s Licensed Tax Practitioner: Advisor’s level of expertise surpasses the level of expertise of the Licensed Tax Practitioner: Compiler. The Tax Advisor has extensive experience and expertise in the industry with a thorough understanding of tax law and provides services, over and above the Tax Compiler duties and provides services for individuals with complex business structures, trusts and businesses of large sizes, relating to corporate, personal, value-added and payroll taxation:
