The six easy steps to register for eFiling:

To make use of the SARS eFiling facility, you need to register online as a user.

Log on to the SARS site, click 'register' and then complete the following steps:

Step #1: Read and accept the Terms and Conditions relating to the use of the site.

Step #2: Select your own user ID and password. For security purposes, SARS will automatically add four additional characters to the user ID. For example, if you select 'JoeS' as your user ID, the system will generate your user ID as 'JoeS9731' (the numbers are chosen randomly).

Step #3: Enter the information relating to the person who'll be accessing the site. This is a security measure.

How to get your Vat documentation right – first time, every time

Did you know...that in the vast majority of cases SARS has issues NOT with your interpretation of the Act, or with fancy avoidance schemes, or even with complicated transactions, but with your documentation. This is where the most disputes, investigations and all-out battles with the assessors arise – and the crazy thing is, it's all so avoidable.

You must get your documentation right, first time, every time – click here and we'll show you how with practical tips and explanations, checklists and actual examples of invoices and returns.

Step #4: Enter details about your organisation.

Step #5: You can enter details for the specific returns you are required to submit. So, you'll need the relevant reference numbers to complete this step.

Step #6: Your registration on the system is now complete. You have to fax a copy of your South African ID and the SARS eFiling summary form to 0866 48 28 58 or your user ID and password won't be activated
