Many people and businesses don’t know what a public officer is, so let’s have a look at the definition: A Public officer is elected or appointed to represent a company on tax and compliance issues and is answerable for all actions on behalf of the company. Every company conducting business or operating an office in South Africa must at all times be represented by a public officer. It makes sense to use Taxcorp as your company’s Public Officer because we represent over 53 international companies and have expert knowledge of the South African legislative and financial landscape.

The Income Tax Act requires that the position of public officer is appointed at all times, and if vacant, the public officer position needs to be filled within 14 days and SARS must be notified of the new appointment. As public officers, we will deal with SARS on your behalf and represent your company’s interests in terms of section 101 of the Income Tax Act No 58 of 1962. We will ensure your company complies with the act and requirements by SARS. The role of the public officer is extremely important and failure to appoint a public officer could lead to penalties.
