Cape Town - A couple accused of defrauding the SA Revenue Service (Sars) of more than R5m are set to strike a plea and sentencing deal, the Cape Argus reported on Friday.

Neil Goldman, 39, and his wife Bronwyn, 35, reportedly appeared in the Bellville Regional Court on Thursday, where it was heard the proposed agreement was not yet finalised.

The Cape Town couple would return to court on Tuesday following a few amendments.

According to the report, Bronwyn Goldman worked as a team leader in the audit department at Sars and had allegedly helped her husband defraud the revenue service of more than R5m by submitting false income tax returns, between 2005 and 2010.

The couple had reportedly been charged with 186 counts of fraud but the wife faced four additional counts of fraud.

The charges related to a panel beating and vehicle hire business that Neil Goldman owned in Kommetjie.
