Testimonials

I would like to thank Nico and his team for the high level of expertise, competence and professionalism in dealing with our recent income tax review and ancillary matters. In addition to these highest levels of expertise and ability to assist us to practically apply the law, I have found the Unicus team to be very accommodating to our challenging time frames. They were always available and/or quick to respond to all of correspondence and questions. In short, excellent service! Thank you.

Nico's knowledge of Tax and dealing with SARS is second to none. I would strongly recommend him to anyone that needs assistance in this regard.

Charl Geyser

Managing Director: Africa - DR Gaming Technology™

Tax legislation has become extremely complicated in recent years, with today’s tax environment resembling a minefield. With SARS under huge pressure to collect revenue, the average SARS staff member (that one encounters in their call centres or at their help desks, when you are eventually able speak to someone) only able to resolve the most basic of matters, and SARS personnel themselves not always adhering to the tax legislation correctly, one needs professional assistance to negotiate this minefield. I have found Nico Theron of Unicus Tax Specialists to be very knowledgeable on tax matters; accurate, clear and concise; and so able to resolve matters promptly and effectively with SARS.
