SARS helps tackle city debtors

2014-10-10 00:00

THE South African Revenue Service will help municipalities go after their debtors by providing access to its database.

Co-operative Governance MEC Nomusa Dube-Ncube said municipalities need all the help they can get as they tackle their credit control.

“We are concerned that our municipalities are owed more than R10 billion by various stakeholders. This source of revenue is key to the survival of municipalities.

“The key to successful credit control is access to accurate and up-to-date information on debtors. This is where help from the revenue service will prove invaluable to our municipalities,” she said.
