Renowned South African actress and successful entrepreneur Sophie Ndaba is now entangled in a legal battle with SARS as she faces allegations of tax evasion. The South African Revenue Service (SARS) has demanded that she settle a staggering R23 million in unpaid taxes, as revealed in two official letters sent to her.
These substantial arrears are linked to Ndaba’s business entity, Sophla Trading. Despite a prior summons that seemingly went unanswered, SARS recently issued a follow-up summons, intensifying the pressure on the actress and entrepreneur.
Sophie Ndaba may lose her company.
In a second letter allegedly sent to the actress, SARS is trying to recoup its taxes. The revenue collector warned the actress that if she failed to pay her bill of taxes, her company’s assets could be auctioned off.
The first letter is said to have been sent a few months ago to Sophla Trading.
