Marius quotes his reasons for joining Konsise: “No other company has the vision to assist South African tax teams as compared to Konsise. Further, Konsise’s approach is product-based, which means customers do not have to pay expensive consulting fees. Month-on-month, Konsise adds new tax automation that its customers are asking for, and their customers are South Africa’s biggest corporates.

Tax digitalisation in South Africa

Marius Bothma’s arrival signifies a strategic hire and underscores Konsise’s commitment to revolutionising tax compliance technology. Recognising the broader context in which this move takes place is essential.

The South African tax environment is rapidly evolving into a digital landscape, driven primarily by the South African Revenue Service (SARS) and its focus on greater tax compliance. Konsise stands at the forefront of this digital tax revolution, leading the charge in digitalising tax compliance. In an era where digital tax transformation is no longer an option but a necessity, companies and accounting firms that fail to keep pace with this shift towards a digital tax landscape risk being left behind. This recent hire shows the company’s commitment to innovation and positions it as a trailblazer in digital tax compliance, ensuring its clients stay ahead of the competition by embracing cutting-edge, efficient, and customer-centric tax solutions.

With Marius on board, Konsise is poised to set new benchmarks in tax technology solutions, offering unparalleled value to the South African tax landscape.
