Clean-up at Sars

Finweek English Edition - - IN THE NEWS -

Nene has ap­pointed an ad­vi­sory com­mit­tee, chaired by re­tired judge Frank Koon, to look into gov­er­nance at the South African Rev­enue Ser­vice ( Sars). This fol­lows nu­mer­ous re­ports of gov­er­nance is­sues at Sars and the sus­pen­sion and res­ig­na­tion of a num­ber of top of­fi­cials.

Nene was vague about the com­mit­tee’s ex­act man­date, other than to say its aim was to help “re­store the in­tegrity of the in­sti­tu­tion.”

The com­mit­tee’s main task is to guide its long-term di­rec­tion and make sure de­ci­sions on op­er­a­tions, per­son­nel, bud­get and tech­nol­ogy sup­port its plan.

It will ad­vise Nene on Sars’s strate­gic and busi­ness plans, op­er­a­tional plans and bud­get.

It will re­view “events” re­ported on in re­cent months and ad­vise Nene and the Sars Com­mis­sioner on how to pre­vent them from hap­pen­ing again.
