Relevant Material (Supporting Documents)

Relevant material (supporting documents) may differ or additional documents may be needed. When we say a document must be recent, we mean three months or less.

See our list of supporting documents when you need to register as a taxpayer or change your registered details.

Top Tip: Remember if you are submitting your relevant material via eFiling, there are certain standards which must be met, click here for more information.

Important: When registering for the first time make sure all supporting documents (relevant material) needed (e.g. Registration, Address and Banking Details) are available. We won't be able to register you unless all the documents are received.

Registration details include your name, surname, ID or trading name, company registered name and company registration number. Below are a list of the forms and what you will need:

  • Kindly note that the 'IT77 registration form for Individuals' was discontinued and that the only way to register is to visit a SARS branch where the friendly staff will register you on our system.

Top Tip: Bring along a certified copy to speed up the process.

  • IT77C – A copy of the Memorandum and Articles of Association/Memorandum of Incorporation; Certificate of Incorporation; Certificate to commence business (if not February year-end).
  • Documents required for Co-operatives: constitution signed by the founding members. Notice of registration with the co-operative registration number (CR10 form). Co-operative Certificate of Confirmation.
  • IT77TR – Provide a copy of the:
    • Certificate of Incorporation for the Trust (Master's Office)
    • Trust Deed registered with the Master's Office.
  • EMP101e – refer to EMP101e Notes for a detailed list depending on nature of person.
  • VAT101 – For supporting documents, click here.
  • Customs – SC-CF-23: The form DA 185 and applicable annexures lists the supporting documents you need.
  • Excise – SE-FS-03:- The form DA 185 and applicable annexures shows supporting documents you need.

The completion of the relevant tax application and amendment form are no longer mandatory, but the supporting document associated with the applicable change is still mandatory. E.g if you are required to update your address detail SARS will require a proof of an address , or when requesting bank detail changes at the branch the full FICA requirement will still apply.
