Voluntary Disclosures

You may have made a mistake in your tax return or forgotten to inform SARS about some income, profits or gains. Telling SARS before it realises and investigates you usually means the situation is resolved with lower penalties and at less cost to you. This is known as making a voluntary disclosure.

BDO’s Tax Dispute Resolution team will advise you on the best way to make a voluntary disclosure to SARS given your circumstances and the matters to be corrected. Overall we aim to efficiently bring your tax affairs up to date so that you can move on knowing that all is rectified.

We will handle the process from start to finish. This will involve contacting SARS, preparing a detailed disclosure including calculating the tax payable, resolving any queries, and agreeing on the final liability including any applicable interest and penalties.
