Our Foundation

Unicus Tax was founded on the core principle that clients want top class tax advice and strategic, but practical solutions that actually adds constructive value to their business. Clients are not only interested in how well a tax professional knows tax law but rather in how well a tax professional can use that knowledge to their benefit based on their facts and circumstances. This is the driver behind our mission to always be proficient, efficient and effective.

About us

It is the Unicus Tax team’s firm grasp of tax law combined with our unique ability to use our top class skill to the benefit of our clients as well as our accessibility and years of experience that makes us the go-to, trusted tax experts for Financial Directors and CEO’s of large companies, high net worth individuals and various audit and law firms across South Africa.

We have secured payment by SARS of millions in unlawfully withheld refunds, have a 100% win rate on tax disputes we take on against SARS, have a 100% VDP success rate, have saved taxpayers hundreds of millions in undue taxes and tax penalties, and have resolved and continue to resolve issues with SARS where other practitioners were unable to secure resolution.

You too can benefit from our service. Feel free to contact us.


Our clients include listed companies, unlisted medium to large companies, individuals, law firms, accounting firms and audit firms.
