Being a Registered Tax Practitioner is important for a number of reasons:

- Thirdly, we keep up to date with industry requirements through the annual CPD study requirements
- Fourthly, we are able to manage the SARS e-Filing portal with approval from our clients.
Furthermore, registration is a legal requirement in terms of section 240 of the Tax Administration Act; which includes Customs.
