With tax season set to conclude later this month, the South African Revenue Service (SARS) operations will be bolstered by the reopening of several branches around the country. This comes after weeks of strikes.

 


While tax filing season is underway in South Africa, many workers at the country’s tax regulator have been on an indefinite strike. This indefinite strike has been temporarily suspended as unions return to the bargaining table.

 


While the country's tax regulator has geared up for a busy tax filing season, workers around the county have downed tools in protest. This comes as SARS kicked off their tax season just last week.


High inflation and the rising cost of living in South Africa have left citizens trying to stretch their salaries to meet their needs. This has seen an intensification of labour unions calling for salary increases.
