Case Studies





TaxTim is the brainchild of young and brilliant South African entrepreneurs, Marc Sevitz, a qualified CA and tax specialist, and Evan Robinson, an inventor and software developer, who after being selected to join the national Google Umbono programme last year, created a fun, easy and fast online tax return solution for young professionals.

TaxTim asks you simple questions in plain English and then automatically completes your tax return for you, so that you can immediately send it to SARS, via e-filing, in person or through your tax practitioner.

TaxTim also offers Employee-Assist, a service allowing employers to help employees become tax compliant.  Employees receive prepaid coupons for use of the TaxTim service, year-round email/SMS notifications to ensure compliance and timely filing, a financial welfare program comprising tax tips and financial advice newsletter, a vehicle logbook mobi-site for recording work trips on a mobile phone plus a TaxTim introduction seminar followed up with assistance on their online helpdesk.
