Restoring the credibility of Sars critical – Nene

As the annual tax filing season opened, Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene on Monday said government was deeply committed to stabilising the South African Revenue Service (Sars) to a credible operation and making sure it met collection targets. "There can be no mission more important than stabilising and restoring Sars into an institution that is credible in the eyes of the South African public," Nene said.
