You don’t have to sit back and accept things as they are if you aren’t happy with a decision SARS has made.

If you disagree with SARS’ actions, or its findings, you can object and reach a resolution. And if SARS rejects your objection, you have the right to appeal.

But where do you start when you appeal?

Keep reading to discover the five steps you must follow to effectively appeal a SARS decision.

Five steps to follow if SARS disallows your objection and you want to appeal 

Step #1: Complete the ADR2 in detail

Complete your appeal against SARS’ decision on the ADR2 form.

Step #2: Check all the details

Carefully fill in the form and clearly explain the reasons for your appeal and sign the form.

Step #3: Deliver the ADR2 to SARS

Take your ADR2 form to SARS within 21 business days after the date SARS notified you that they won’t allow your objection.

According to the Practical Tax Loose Leaf Service, if you can only deliver your appeal after 21 days due to certain circumstances, you must ask SARS to condone the delay. If SARS doesn’t extend the time within which you can lodge an appeal, you can also object to this decision.

Step #4: State how you want to be represented

If you want someone to represent you at the hearing, state this in the notice of appeal.

Step #5: Resolve the dispute

Once the appeal process starts, you can resolve your dispute in three ways:
  1. Alternative dispute resolution (ADR);
  2. The Tax Board; and
  3. The Tax Court.
Now that you know the five steps to follow if SARS disallows your objection and you want to appeal, enforce your rights.
