SARS have announced a new Tax Compliance Status System. This process will need to be followed when applying for tax clearance certificates. Taxpayers will also be able to give 3rd parties a PIN to allow them to verify a taxpayer’s tax compliance status online.
Although this system should be quicker and easier for taxpayers to obtain tax clearance, it is important to note that all returns will have to be up to date and all taxes will need to be paid timeoulsy in order for clearance to be issued. Taxpayers should therefore make this a priority to ensure they can obtain the necessary clearance when urgently needed.
