With all the mayhem associated with Sars, it seems as though some South Africans have lost faith in its capabilities, and overall performance.
Economics and finance commentator Barbara Curson addresses some steps Sars can take to better the relationship it has with the South African people, and highlights some blunders that Sars made along the way.
Curson says that the acting commissioner of Sars Mark Kingon has quite a hard task ahead of him. She adds that Mark is definitely the right appointment because he’s been there for at least 30 years and knows what’s wrong with Sars.
They’ve lost a lot of key staff; they’ve lost a lot of internal knowledge and they need to train the staff they have.— Barbara Curson, economics and finance commentator
The error Sars often makes is that they bring in top leaders who are new to the world of tax says Curson.
