On the second day of investigation around SARS, four former SARS managers explained why they “resigned”.
Barry Hore, who was the chief operating officer, told the bad news that during Tom Moyane period more than R142 million uncollected tax had been lost. According to Hore, revenue figures were manipulated when SARS VAT payments were held back in order to hide their inability to hide taxes.
Sunita Manik of the Large Business Center confirmed Hore’s statement.
More than R47 billion debt was run up in three years from 2013/14 and adding Malusi Gigaba’s R48 billion plus the income shortage last year of R30 million deficit. This brings the total to R125 billion.
If the accumulated VAT debt (due to taxpayers) is added to R16,7 million, it rises to R142 million.
Moyane is also accused of entering into strange agreements and breaking down the investigative ability of SARS. At the same time, he got rid of the best experts.
