Sanral targets big business to recover money owed for e-tolls
Outa says Sanral is now focusing on businesses that signed the e-toll contract, but have stopped paying.
JOHANNESBURG - The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) says the South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) is specifically targeting businesses in its latest bid to recover money owed for e-tolls.
Sanral yesterday announced that summonses will be delivered by sheriffs in different jurisdictions in Gauteng over the next few days.
It says the summonses should not be confused with criminal proceedings, but rather the issue is being approached like the non-payment of any other commercial account.
Outa chairperson Wayne Duvenage says Sanral is now focusing on businesses that signed the contract with the agency in the past, but have stopped paying.
"They know that we will defend them in court if they're ever summonsed. Clearly from what Sanral say, they not going after the general motorists, they're going after the big value corporate customers."
