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..

    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!!!!

    5 star review  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.

    5 star review  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!

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.
