Estate duty payments can only be made via eFiling,  there is no EFT option available for it.

To make a payment on the eFiling system:
1) Select Additional Payments and then Create Additional Payment
2) Under Tax Type, select 'Estate Duty (ESD)'
3) Type Taxpayer (deceased) name
4) Under Type of payment, select 'Estate Duty Normal Payment'
5) Under Reference number you must type in the deceased’s tax reference number (Estate Duty Normal Payment. Please be aware that in order to make a payment for the selected tax type you are required to be registered for Income Tax. The reference number provided with this payment must be the Income Tax Reference number.)  If the deceased was not registered for income tax, the Executor will have to apply for Income Tax registration for his client.
6) Enter the amount
7) Select Make Payment
Please also confirm the payment with the bank. After you have made the payment you can forward the proof of payment to the estateduty@sars.gov.za mailbox.
