The Tax Indaba was launched in 2011 thanks to the successful collaboration of local tax professional bodies. Since its debut, the event has grown in leaps and bounds. This is evidenced by the Finance Minister’s involvement as keynote speaker for two consecutive years, as well as the extensive media coverage the event garners on TV news channels, radio stations and in printed media.
The event was created with the entire tax community in mind, with the goal of uplifting and uniting the tax profession. The event also provides the ideal platform to connect tax professionals with Government institutions such as National Treasury, SARS and the Office of the Tax Ombud. It is an absolute must for tax professionals, tax practitioners, accountants, bookkeepers, small business owners and anybody operating in the tax industry.
Each Tax Indaba event hosts around 1 800 delegates who look forward to the 50+ tax topics that are covered over 5 days. In 2018, each day of Tax Indaba week was appointed a general theme that represents the multi-faceted nature of tax. Some of the themes covered include: International tax, corporate tax, indirect taxes and levies, investments and estates, payroll and employee-related compliance. The daily dual-stream programme ensures that there is something for everyone, from large international firms to small tax practitioners. Book for this event on the SAIBA’s event calendar.
