As part of celebrating our ten years of service, SARS will host an Open Day for the taxpaying public at its offices on Monday 1st October. This day marks the organisation's tenth birthday since its establishment under the South African Revenue Service Act on October 1 1997.
SARS is marking this milestone with an open invitation to taxpayers to visit our offices on Monday 1st October. The organization's leaders will be deployed to different offices throughout the country to share in the celebration and interact with our clients firsthand. We wish to use this occasion to express our gratitude for the support and co-operation of South Africans over the last decade. It is this goodwill and willingness to contribute to the wellbeing of the nation that has seen us exceed revenue expectations consistently.
On this day we toast the people of our land and the improvement in the quality of life we have achieved as a country. SARS looks forward to working even harder with our people to make South Africa even greater.
