Tax Practioner Service

A new service offering – let NFS manage your SARS submissions

Work in progress – watch this space for information about our latest service offering

When it comes to matters of finance, you know that we pride ourselves on offering you seamless services that run efficiently and (as far as possible) quietly in the background!  

We know you do not want to spend hours on the administration that could be professionally completed. We work hard to ensure that we offer you a holistic approach to your finances which optimizes all the benefits available to you and mitigate any risks and ensure there are no administrative glitches.

Because of our high standards, we have always taken a conservative approach to introduce new products or services. We have for some time contemplated adding an in-house tax service. We have concluded that this would be mutually beneficial to our clients and NFS.

Systems upgrade

First off, we acquired specialist tax software. It is part of our business-wide system upgrade and will make it possible for us to manage our files even more efficiently whilst integrating it directly with the SARS database. The software will allow for more friendly reports to be generated.

Appointing an accredited Tax Practitioner

After much deliberation, we have retained the services of Craig Whittle, a Chartered Accountant  who will do all signoffs before submission to SARS.  Should you wish to communicate with our Tax Department, please use the following email address: Taxes@northwood.co.za 

The benefits

We know YOU, and we understand your estate. We see the course of action that would suit you best and have advised you on tax-related matters in the past. It also means that we have access to your previous submissions and can therefore compare your current proposed submission to it.

The above ensures not only accuracy but also helps us to promptly identify potential errors or oversights. As you well know, it is always better (and takes less time, resources and energy) to prevent mistakes, rather than fight the system to fix it!

Cost implications

Clients who choose to enlist the services of our in-house Tax Practitioner will be invoiced by Northwood Financial Services cc. The Tax service offering will thus be invoiced accordingly.

Vat Registration

Our fees will be slightly higher because we are a VAT registered concern. If you are VAT registered, you can claim this back from SARS.
