After news emerged that they were requesting R204 Million from her company Zikhulise Cleaning Maintenance & Transport, Shauwn Mkhize made headlines again for her fallout with the South African Revenue Services.
Reports also claimed that a liquidation order against her company was given by the Pretoria High Court and apparently shut down. The businesswoman had an eNCA interview where she speaks about the matter saying it is not a new issue, as she fails to understand why people find it a big deal when it’s not news breaking.
Shauwn, shrugging off the hysteria surrounding the liquidation order, said in September 2019 that she and SARS had “reached an agreement.”
“My lawyers gave me a liquidation judgment two days ago, which occurred in 2016. You know how our justice system functions, so much have happened since that,” she told the news broadcaster.
She added that the liquidation was demanded by SARS in 2016, but the decision was not issued.
“After we went to the SARS tax court, the case was appealed and we reached a SARS settlement. Everyone is happy about this now, as it is a new development. In any event, I have advised my lawyers to appeal [the judgment] so that it comes to an end and that it is finalized and we are good to go again,” she giggled.
At the Hollywood and African Prestigious Awards ceremony in Beverly Hills on Sunday, Shauwn was presented with the Woman of The Year Award. Their reality show Kwa Mam’Mkhize, together with her musician son Andile Mpisane, was nominated for the best reality show at the same awards event.
