Impact on SARS of closure of the Master’s offices

FISA received the following communication from SARS.

“As you may be aware, the attached Covid–19 Protocols were issued by Chief Master’s Office for level 3.
We have been informed that there was a positive Covid–19 case in the Pretoria Master’s Office and SARS will therefore be unable to scan the Liquidation and Distribution accounts at the Master’s office until after 17 July 2020. You are therefore kindly requested to disseminate the information to your members to ensure that they are aware of the situation and comply with the attached protocols.”

This situation will apply in all cases where a Master’s Office has to close due to Covid-19.
