And In Other Important Tax News …..

  1. Firstly, note that from 1 April 2016 (no April fool joke) SARS will no longer accept payments at SARS’ branches, except for Customs payments. Taxpayers will have to pay –

        a.    At your bank
        b.    Via eFiling.
        c.    Via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT).

    Remember that banks will not process payments that are not correctly referenced. This means you need to include your Tax number and the payment reference number. 

    Please also note no cheques will be accepted at SARS’s offices either via post or dropped off. The payment desks at SARS will be discontinued.
