The South African Revenue Service has embarked on a major recruitment drive and made systems improvements to improve revenue collection and widen the taxpayer net, says commissioner Edward Kieswetter. Speaking to the Daily Maverick, Kieswetter said this includes a renewed focus on wealthy taxpayers in the country – particularly those with assets of R75 million or more. “For honest taxpayers, this new division will help simplify their taxes and make things easier, but where we suspect dishonesty, SARS will come down hard and be vigilant for any potential corruption or attempts to hide assets,” he said.
