Tax probe to continue

JOHANNESBURG - The commission of inquiry into tax administration and governance at SARS moves into its third phase this week.

Retired Judge Robert Nugent and his team will hear testimonies from Treasury officials, among others.

Among the many objectives of the commission is to figure out why many skilled people at SARS either left, were targeted or pushed out under then-Commissioner Tom Moyane's tenure.

Moyane hired consultancy firm Bain & Company to develop a new operating model at the cost of nearly R200-million to the taxpayers.

Bain has told the commission it was awarded the contract because it was the cheapest service provider at the time.

The inquiry resumes on Tuesday and sits until Friday.  

Officials from the Treasury and Bain are among those expected to take the witness stand this week.
