The tax environment is dynamic and demands constant attention to changes such as with statutory requirements and any change emphasis as they implement Government policy. Lately there has been a shift from tax planning towards tax risk planning, as legislation is amended and with more emphasis being on compliance.
Effective advice on Tax Returns and Strategy means knowing the tax code, what’s changed and what’s in or out. If there is a coming change to the tax code, we know about it first and we can help you to plan accordingly so that it does not affect your business. Valuable information about tax exemptions or tax breaks can be the difference between the success and failure of your business.
At CA RA Mpako we are the first to advice clients about the impact of these changes, and assist with decision making and planning in line with Government requirements. Our tax experts ensure that our clients are not exposed to potential or unnecessary risk with South African Revenue Services.
