With the new Tax Compliance Status (TCS) system, a taxpayer is now able to authorise any 3rd party to verify its compliance status in one of two ways :

Related : South African Revenue Service Register For eFiling : www.southafricain.com/1507.html

** Through the use of an electronic access PIN, or

** Through the use of a Tax Clearance Certificate obtained from the new TCS system.

Verification through the use of the PIN :

The PIN can be used to verify the taxpayer’s compliance status,

** online via SARS eFiling, or

** at a SARS branch.

Verification of the Tax Clearance Certificate (TCC) obtained from the new TCS system :

** The TCC can be verified,

** online via SARS eFiling,

** via the SARS Contact Centre (0800 00 7277), or

** at a SARS branch.

How To Verify TCS/ TCC Via SARS eFiling?

Step 1 : Logon to eFiling

** To use the new Tax Compliance Status Verification service online, you must be authorised to use eFiling.

** An authorised person (for example the representative taxpayer or eFiling administrator) of the organisation that can setup user groups and user rights must login and activate the service.

Step 2: Activate the Tax Compliance Verification service

** Activation of the Tax Compliance Verification service is a once-off process.

** Once you have logged in, setup your user groups and applicable user rights in order to perform TCS/ TCC verifications

** Click on “Tax Status

** Select “Tax Compliance Status Verification”

** Complete the activation process.

Step 3: Verify the taxpayer’s TCS/ TCC

** Select the “New Verification Request” menu.

** Capture and submit the taxpayer’s tax reference number and PIN or TCC number.

** Confirm that the taxpayer information displayed corresponds with those of the taxpayer who you intend to verify.

** Where the TCC number is used, the system will display if the TCC is valid.

** Where the PIN is used, the taxpayer’s current tax compliance status will appear and will be colour-coded with a detailed description of what the status means.

The colour coding indicates if the taxpayer’s current tax affairs are in order or not :

** Red – Tax affairs are not in order and the taxpayer is not tax complian

** Green – Tax affairs are in order and the taxpayer is tax compliant.

** You will now be able to print the verification for recording purposes.

** Your verification will also be stored electronically in “History” for future reference.

** For more detail on the steps, see our Guide to the Tax Compliance Status on eFiling.
