Handle Objection

What our clients say about us

  • 5 star review  2020 Another year of excellent service – it’s such a pleasure working with FMJ. I really do appreciate the hard work they put in, as well as them keeping me informed every step of the way. Thanks to FMJ keeping all records, I supplied only what was needed for the 2019 Tax year – making this year even easier for me. I am only happy to remain a client, and will continue to recommend FMJ to my friends and colleagues. 2019 I was in need of help with my Tax return as I had let out my property for the first time. I had no idea how to file a return with regards to rental income. I did a search and looked at a few tax practitioners and eventually came across FMJ Financial Services. I was sceptical of all the glowing Google reviews at first, but having done some research, I could only find positive feedback. I decided to apply for a quote and take it from there. Needless to say I ended up using FMJ to file my tax return. The process was painless and the turn-around time was quick, and I was kept informed every step of the way. I can wholeheartedly recommend FMJ, based on my experience, and I will gladly remain a client of theirs.

  • 5 star review  An exceptionally professional organization with a high degree of skilled employees who ensure the customer experience is always a pleasurable one. I initially discovered FMJ when I was subjected to an audit a few years ago that almost left me out of pocket unnecessarily. FMJ turned this around for me after detecting errors in my submission. They have since been my preferred Tax Practitioner and have served me over the past 5 years.

    5 star review  The staff at FMJ are very friendly and knowledgeable. As I live abroad I was struggling to get registered for a tax number and almost lost the will to live before contacting them. They made the whole process very easy for me and kept me updated every step of the way with a very successful outcome. I couldn't have done it without them, 5 stars very well deserved. Thanks you FMJ

SARS is now auditing (estimated):

TAX SEASON 2020 OPENING 1 SEPT

Leading tax practitioners and consultants in South Africa specialising with Individual tax only.

#1 Tax Practitioner and Consultants in South Africa

A tax practitioner is a person or a company that prepares and submits a tax return on behalf of a third parties for a fee and which is registered with a controlling body and with SARS. We are based in Johannesburg and Pretoria, Gauteng. 

Some of the controlling bodies are SAICA, SAIT, SAIPA, IRBA, ICSA and a few others.

Therefore, a person must be registered with one of the above recognised controlling bodies as well as with SARS.

A person can only register with one of the above controlling bodies once a minimum amount of experience and/or qualifications are met.

Once a person has been registered with both SARS and a recognised controlling body, one is able to practice in the field of taxation. From there, a tax practitioner profile should be registered, and clients acquired could be registered on the tax practitioner’s profile.

It is worthy to notes that there are different types of taxes such as Income tax, VAT, PAYE, Provisional taxes, Dividend withholding taxes, etc. All these different types could be loaded and shared between client and tax practitioner so that both parties have access to these types of returns.

Where the tax account is maintained in the proper way, the tax practitioner will be notified on e-filing of any correspondence such as additional assessments on income tax, notifications of audits, completion letters and many more. This assists the tax practitioner in effectively manage their client by receiving notifications as soon as they are made available and planning a course of action. Where the tax practitioner works on e-filing most of the day and manages this nifty functionary, delays could be avoided which averts compilations going forward.

According to our experience, SARS will not assist a tax practitioner to file a return at the branch office on behalf of a third party except in exceptional circumstances.  This is as the tax practitioner has no need to use the branch office and is paid by the client. If paid by the client, SARS branch should be involved in filing the return hence the policy by SARS. There should also be noted that there is generally no need for a tax practitioner to use the branch office to complete a return.
