How Do I Pay?

What’s New?

  •  1 March 2018 – Year-end payments

The deadline for outstanding tax returns and payments due by end of March, was Thursday 29 March 2018, before Easter. Due to the long weekend, taxpayers were requested to pay by 12-midday. Pay conveniently online, on time – avoid penalties and interest. Being late could cost you!

Do you have outstanding taxes? Do you need help deciding what to do or whom to call?
Taxpayers, both individuals and businesses, are required to be fully tax compliant through on time submission of returns and payments, to avoid penalties and interest being charged.
If you owe money to SARS and need to make payments arrangements, see our information here.
Top Tip: Not sure when the submission dates are? See a list of Important Dates here.

Important – If the submission date falls on a weekend or public holiday, you need to submit the return/declaration together with your payment, if applicable, by the last business day before the weekend or public holiday.
In instances where taxpayers are not compliant and have outstanding tax debt, the Debt Management department is committed to assisting businesses and individuals to become fully compliant.
If you want to make a payment to SARS, there are a number of options e.g. at a bank, via eFiling and via EFT. For more detail on payment options, click here.
Top Tip: In addition to the available payment options, Customs payments can also be made at any SARS Customs office, for more information please read SARS Payment Rules.
If you need to change your banking details you can do it:
  • On eFiling of you’re a registered eFiler
  • In person at any SARS branch if you’re not registered with eFiling, or
  • When completing and submitting your Income Tax Return for Individuals (ITR12).
