BlueBlox was approached by a global client to assist in the process of submitting vital tax registration forms to the South African Revenue Service (SARS) on behalf of its local subsidiary.
Without this registration under the Customs and Excise Act, our client would not be able to operate as needed in South Africa – but their local staff in South Africa did not have the knowledge or expertise to prepare or submit the complex forms. So BlueBlox stepped in to help.
The main issues faced by the local subsidiary were: the multiple supporting documents required, many of them of a legal nature from overseas; confusion over whether the forms should be submitted manually in person or online; and all exacerbated by the unfolding Covid-19 pandemic.
Using our South African legal and compliance experts, BlueBlox were able to engage with SARS officials to understand the true requirements for our client’s operation in South Africa, advise on the preparation and management of the submission to SARS, and resolve any technical queries from SARS on behalf of our client, enabling them to submit their registration fully compliantly.
If you need any assistance with registrations or submissions for your subsidiaries or branches in remote locations, BlueBlox have the local technical and professional expertise to achieve this. Contact us today!
