SARSANA reports that suspended SA Revenue Service (SARS) commissioner Tom Moyane will be facing disciplinary charges, President Cyril Ramaphosa's office said on Friday.  

The charges were served on Moyane on Thursday and related to alleged misconduct in violation of his duties and responsibilities in terms of the SA Revenue Service Act, the Public Finance Management Act and the SARS Code of Conduct, the presidency indicated.  It added that the disciplinary inquiry related to alleged leadership and organisational failures.  Retired Constitutional Court Judge Kate O’Regan will be the presiding officer for the disciplinary inquiry.  The presidency also said that a commission of inquiry would be established to probe tax administrative issues like VAT refunds and shortfalls in revenue in the past two financial years.  Moyane was suspended in May after he refused to heed the president's request to resign.  Ramaphosa’s office said at the time that disciplinary charges would follow.
