All rich South Africans must submit to lifestyle audits - judge Dennis Davis
RELATED: How to get a tax refund from Sars
Rich South Africans’ lifestyles must be audited, said Tax Review Committee Chairperson Dennis Davis on Monday.
The South African Revenue Service (Sars) under-collects between R50 billion and R100 billion each year.
Davis referred to lifestyle audits for the wealthy as “low-hanging” fruit in the mission to collect every rand that is due.
South Africa is short R300 billion this year – a shakeout of tax-dodging, high-net-worth South Africans is imminent.
The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Davis.
