About Us

In order to add to our national revenue, National Treasury revises tax legislation on a regulars basis which SARS must implement and apply. SARS subsequently distributes business requirement specification documents to the industry on a continuous basis. This puts an arduous burden on companies to build and adjust reporting systems in order to comply with the various SARS tax reporting requirements, where failure to comply always poses the risk of attracting SARS penalties for non-compliance and reputational risk to your company.

Employee Benefit Tax (ebTax) provides an efficient, easy to use web based platform or direct integration into our client’s core systems in order to function as a one stop tax employee compliance system to SARS.
