​By when should I pay SARS if I owe money on my Return?


If you owe money to SARS the due date for payment will show on the Notice of Assessment (ITA34).

The payment due dates are:

• eFilers: 31 January.

• Manual or electronic filing in a SARS Branch: By the end of the next month from assessment date.

Estates and overseas taxpayers get an extra month for both scenarios.

Top tip: If payment is not made by the due date, a penalty will be levied and interest will accrue from a backdated date. The backdated date is the first of the next month after the 'Date of assessment'.
