Tax fraudster behind bars

2016-07-21 06:00

Following lengthy investigations, the Hawks’ Commercial Wing arrested a 42 year old Tax practitioner for fraud.

It is alleged that between 2009 and 2012 the suspect would approach unsuspecting SARS clients, undertake to assist them in submitting their returns and then submitted fictitious business financial statements as well as false business expenses/losses as supporting documents. Upon the refund materialising he would then allegedly pocket large sums.

He is expected to appear at the Bellville Commercial Crimes Court.
