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..

    I had some serious tax issues dating back to 2006 and some current outstanding returns. After engaging with a couple of other "tax consultants" who just never responded to queries or provided feedback, I approached FMJ. What a difference, they sorted out all my issues, kept me regularly updated, were friendly and professional. I will definitely remain a client of theirs. Thank you to the FMJ Tax Practitioners team, I am extremely grateful for your service.

    I remember over 6 years ago seeing a placard on JJ Strydom Street, Weltevredenpark written FMJ Financials specializing in personal tax return. My decision to work with them was the best one ever, given my tax situation. I have been with FMJ Team for over the years, their special customized service, professional and patience is amazing. They go all out to provide a service. Thank you Jaco and Team. Regards Bashi Makhafola

    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.

    In a society when we are so used to bad service, I can honestly say that I was blown away by the amazing service I received from FMJ Tax Practitioners, literally from start to finish. From Nalize who dealt with my initial query, to Joleen who ran with obtaining all the documents from me, to Jacques who filed my return, down to Nadia who happened to send me a link for feedback. The constant communication and feedback has been beyond phenomenal. The team work well together to ensure you as their client get the best service, and have a painless tax season. There aren't enough stars for me to recommend just how happy I am with them. Thank you so much to the FMJ Tax Practitioners team, if more companies were as efficient as you were, I believe things would be very different.

    FMJ helped me sort out what I thought was a nightmare of a tax issue. They responded to me very quickly, told me that xyz needs to be done and sent in and my case was resolved within a week of initial contact. While I am an idiot when it comes to tax and my case may have been far simpler than I thought, to me this felt like miracle work.

    I've recently joined FMJ Financial Services. They were extremely helpful, knowledgeable and professional. They helped me sort out my tax returns after I moved from my previous tax consultant. Everything was handled very smoothly and I will definitely be returning to them when next years tax return is due.

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.
