There are three payment functions to help simplify eFiling.
Let's take a closer look at each of these functions.
Use these three methods to check your payments on eFiling
#1: Payment function: Payment listing
What the function does: This function allows you to view all payments you've made since the new Vat return form was introduced.
Why you need it: If you have any unallocated payments, you can use this option to list all these payments together (no more paging through loads of paper work). It'll also show you how to resolve the unallocated payment portion.
#2: Payment function: Pay unallocated payments
What the function does: This function helps you pay an unallocated payment
Why you need it: If your Vat return declaration is unpaid, you can handle unallocated payments better.
#3: Payment function: Fix existing payments faster
What the function does: With this function, you'll be able to amend an existing payment allocation and request multiple reallocations at any time.
Why you need it: It's a time saver and you'll avoid long queues at SARS.
Just keep in mind that while this function allows you to request changes with the click of your mouse, these won't take place instantly. The reason is SARS must first check your request against its records and agree to your reallocation request.
There you have it. eFiling was introduced to make your life easier when paying Vat. So take advantage of these three payment functions.
