SARS Cracking Down Non Compliant Crypto Taxpayers In South Africa.

The SARS [South African Revenue Service] is reportedly notifying its taxpayer’s audit requests, asking those that have held cryptocurrencies to disclose their trading activity.

SARS has sent the requests to several taxpayers who, in turn, contacted professional tax services firm Tax Consulting South Africa, reported native IT news site MyBroadband recently on Tuesday.

Responding taxpayers got to provide the explanations for purchasing cryptocurrency, as well as details of any exchanges from trading platforms as well as bank statements.

In line with the tax consultancy, SARS’ action means the govt. is actually cracking down on non-compliant cryptocurrency traders within the nation.

“It is possible to know that SARS is within the process of ensnaring culpable taxpayers who haven’t disclosed their crypto-related trading profits and or losses,” the firm said within the report.

Within the earlier news, South Africa’s financial market regulator is reportedly seeking greater oversight of the crypto trading industry following the collapse of a Bitcoin [BTC, -0.49%] company imagined to are the nation’s biggest Ponzi scheme.
