A Public Officer plays a vital role in ensuring that a company complies with its tax obligations. They are essentially the company’s representative taxpayer, acting as the primary point of contact with the South African Revenue Service (SARS) for tax purposes.
It’s worth noting that any actions taken by the Public Officer on behalf of the company are legally binding as if the company itself took those actions. Therefore, the person appointed as Public Officer needs to have a solid understanding of tax laws and regulations to avoid any legal complications.
Furthermore, it’s important to appoint a Public Officer with SARS as soon as possible because, without one, your company won’t be able to register for essential services such as Tax Clearance, VAT, and PAYE.
