Have you done your tax return?
Your tax returns should not have to be complicated or confusing. Let us take the stress out of tax by filing your returns and audits on your behalf. Speak to a tax consultant
SARS audits check if things are done correctly, to verify the validity and amount of the claim. If they are not happy, they will simply disallow claims and issue assessments.
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
Prompt and professional service! Tax compliance can be a schlep but these guys eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I highly recommend them.

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.

There are two things in life you can count on - death & taxes. When I discovered that I was completely out of my depth starting a micro-enterprise after being retrenched following Covid lockdowns - I thought it would be death BY taxes. Fortunately, I found Jacques and his phenomenal team before it was too late. Amidst one of the most stressful professional transitions in my life - the FMJ team reassured me, supported me, always picked up the phone, and delivered! The return on investment - both monetary and peace of mind - is the best investment I have ever made. There are few service providers who I could more highly recommend!

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.

Submitting a tax return is no hassle with FMJ! I learned about them through a search result where they wrote an article about managing the travel allowance provided by our employers. I reached out to them and within 24 hours I had received advice on my travel allowance, my outstanding tax return (which my previous tax practitioner had overlooked) and an estimate on my 2019 tax return. I am a happy customer and would recommend them highly!

FMJ have always been very impressive with their service and thoroughness. I have always had very complex tax cases, working as an expat and FMJ have always gone above and beyond when doing my tax returns. I would recommend them to everyone who wants the most out of their tax returns, or any other tax matter at that.

The team at FMJ Tax Practitioners work professionally and proficiently. They keep me constantly updated, either by phone or email, and they have always had my back. They fought tirelessly with SARS when I had a problem with a return, and never gave up till it was solved. Their customer service is rarely seen, and I have no reservations recommending them to manage all your tax needs.

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.
We currently assist clients in Durban, Cape Town, Pretoria, Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth, East London, Bloemfontein, Nelspruit, Polokwane and more.
