    I have received a query that I cannot answer. Members please will you comment.

    I have attached the notice it’s a bit small – but to me the wording of the very first explanatory sentence is what is important.

    “Every practitioner who provides tax advice, with respect to the application of all applicable tax acts, completes or assists in completing a return for the payment of a fee, must be registered with the South African Revenue Service (SARS) & the South African Institute of Professional Accountants (SAIPA) as the Recognised Compliance Body (RCP).”

    It seems to me that the word “all” is what is important.

    But the question I am asked effectively is: do they really mean only when you advise on “all” tax compliance matters?

    What if you are an SDF and only advise on SDL and submission?
    What if you advise on SDL and ETI?
    What if you advise on SDL, ETI, and B-BBEE?

    Appreciate anyone who is able to guide me on this.

    My view is you only need to register if you are advising on all. Please confirm.

    Hi Veronique, thank you.
    Just to confirm – is it only when the advice is on all the tax requirements, not just on SDL?
