Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Sars Registered Representative?

A SARS Registered Representative is an individual authorized to act on behalf of a taxpayer for matters related to the South African Revenue Service (SARS). This role is crucial for businesses, as the representative handles tax-related responsibilities, ensuring compliance with SARS regulations.
