For many business owners, the idea of the South African Revenue Services (SARS) sending a letter of demand can be a make-or-break situation.
In the current economic climate, many businesses are facing significant cash-flow constraints and a dreaded letter from SARS asking for money you don’t have / don’t agree you owe, can be intimidating. The “pay-now-argue-later” principle is often perceived as the only choice for business owners who don’t believe they have the resources to go up against SARS.
We have recently been surveying the Decusatio community and many of the respondents indicate that they aren’t aware that there are professional services firms who can mediate / negotiate with SARS on your behalf.
Instead of simply accepting what SARS is going to charge you [inside of their timeframe], a professional mediator will engage SARS on your behalf and negotiate based on what you are able to physically pay.
As a business owner, this not only saves you significant time – freeing you up to focus on running your business – but also improves your business cash-flow.
There are also bridging loan facilities available to businesses who need a buffer to trade their way out of a dispute with SARS.
