Handle Objection

Getting an objection wrong can mean that the assessment is final and nothing can be done to correct it. It is therefore important that the objection be done within SARS’s rules..

What our clients say about us

  • 5 star review  For anybody who is a bit worried about their personal tax affairs, I would highly recommend the services of FMJ Financial. Not only was the service highly professional but Joleen seemed to take a personal yet unobtrusive interest in my case. Jacques gave me informative advice about my situation, what my options were and why matters we panning out as they were and even valuable advice on future handling of aspects of my tax matters. At each stage the service was prompt, phone calls were followed up with emails to confirm details and I never felt like just another number. Worth every cent of their fee!

    5 star review  I was faced with reactivation of a Tax Number that had been inactive for more than 20 years, and furthermore challenged by being in Denmark and not capable of personally making visits to SARS offices. I contacted FMJ, who warned me that the process was long and thorny, but assured me it was possible. All three predictions turned out to true, but we got there through a thoroughly professional effort from the staff at FMJ. I can strongly recommend FMJ as a company and the staff for its friendliness and professionalism.

    5 star review  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  Service unmatched in South Africa. You cannot find service like this in any company currently in SA. Thank you for your years of service for the "small guy". I would recommend this company any day of the year! Resolved years of SARS and cross boarder tax issues where other companies could not assist (even after payment). If you forget, don't sweat! FMJ will follow-up and remind you information is required! Once again, Thank you for this amazing services!!!!

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.
