SARS has issued Sophla Trading, a company that belongs to former Generations star Sophie Ndaba, a second letter of demand in less than five months, ordering a settlement of more than R23m in outstanding tax debt, reports City Press.

In a letter issued on 3 November, the revenue collector said that the company could have its assets auctioned should the veteran actress fail to settle the hefty bill.

SARS also gave Ndaba 10 business days to respond to the letter for a payment arrangement.

City Press reported in June that Ndaba was served with the first letter of demand for an amount of R23 617 304.64.

The 50-year-old, who got her break as Queen Moroka on the popular SABC1 soapie, appears to be the sole director of Sophla Trading.

SARS alluded to taking legal action if the company failed to comply with payment arrangements.
