JOHANNESBURG - The South African Revenue Service (Sars) has confirmed its Chief Operating Officer Barry Hore has resigned and will leave the organisation at the end of the year.

The tax service says Hore led it through the introduction of new systems that have made it easier for people to communicate with it and ensure sure their tax affairs are in order.

Sars has recently been rocked by claims that one of its units had gone rogue and was running a brothel.

It also been claimed that new Sars commissioner Tom Moyane has suspended some meetings and was dealing with managers on a one-on-one basis.

Sars spokesperson Adrian Lackay says Hore will now pursue other interests.

"He indicated he will stay on until a new permanent commissioner was appointed that obviously happened in September this year. So after almost nine years, he has decided to move on."

Lackey says Hore has made a huge contribution to the organisation.

"He's done phenomenal work in making it easier for tax payers and traders to do business with Sars. I think the benefits of the tax system are there for everyone to experience and evaluate themselves."
