The guy runs a successful business and employs people. Please explain exactly how he is a burden on any of us?
He is breaking laws and by the sounds of what the OP is posting this guy is also ripping people off big time. Dont defend scum

It's not easy to do this because the place is very nice, comfortable and hidden. Everyone who visits is surprised that such a place exists and keeps coming back. If he/she is reported I can only imagine SARS auctioning off the place and him being sent to jail because he/she owes them a couple of million rands in tax.

No one had a problem of him/her not issuing a receipt until disagreements started. He/She won't even give you a bank account number to deposit rent, its strictly cash.
so what. mind your own business

why you so much worried about what he is doing? Personal vendetta? He is defrauding those who are depriving us of what we should get back. All the money we pay to SARS, VAT, Fuel Levy, rates and taxes,blah, blah, blah do we really should? what for? Setting example as good citizens? we paying because we have no choice.

Who wants to pay SARS? Do what is good for you. Doing harm to someone in the name of so called law(correct from whose point of view???) is not good. Laws of nature are horribly more powerful than man made laws. You will end-up with the fruit from the tree you planing in due course of time in some way or other. what goes around, comes around with interest and penalties depending on good or bad.
exactly. well said. its like these idiots who hog the highway right hand lane going 120km/h and refuse to move over because they are suddenly law enforcers. mind your own business, and dont get involved.

But who will pay for Zumas court appearances then? Think about his 29 children who will suffer...

There's plenty of ways to move money around without a paper trail, I guarantee you that anyone pocketing 50k a week in cash has researched this subject in great detail
Plenty of ways, tell us some other than hoarding cash?

The only way to legitimise it is to launder it and that is another headache all together, no free lunch for criminals.

And the fact that he wants cash for everything and no receipts at all means he's not trying to just illegally reduce his tax obligation but rather evade it all together. Not the wisest choice because when the taxman comes knocking that lifestyle audit is going to really open a can of worms.

Geez oke. Get with the program. Sure taxes are not always spent appropriately, but without taxes there wouldn't even be a proper road to his/her business' location. Or to his home.
There aren't proper roads in many areas as it is, and in many other areas they're deteriorating rapidly. And anyone who uses the roads pays the fuel levy and tolls for this anyway (at least that was the theory until they started dipping into that money as well).
There wouldn't be a police force and then it'd well and truly be the wild West here. Not an easy environment to profitably or safely do business or live in.
I pay directly for private security and contribute to the neighbourhood watch. When there is an issue I call them, not the SAPS. SAPS does not even keep public order any more, and will merely observe while property is destroyed. They may as well not exist. It is already the Wild West.
The alternative is the worst. Think New Delhi slum bad. Probably worse since there would likely not even be electricity or running water at all. Anywhere. Any time.
For many people this is already the reality, just not everywhere since the nice suburbs have electricity and water that's paid for directly not from income tax.

Nah, lifestyle audit is the beginning. Can't explain how you got 'x' well then you can choose 1) Criminal Gains 2) Tax evasion. SARS still will nail you with the right motivation.
I sincerely wish SARS would do these lifestyle audits on every single high level public official and family members. We may see quite a few people struggling to explain the new car/house/rings/furniture etc...
