How to verify tax compliance status of foreign suppliers?

Where Foreign Suppliers are providing goods and services to Government Institutions, a Tax Clearance Certificate is required. The process for this is as follows – The relevant government institution procuring the goods or services from the foreign entity, must submit the completed SBD 1 Form, or MBD 1 form of the recommended bidder to [email protected]. SARS will review the submitted documents and depending on the result, a letter will be issued by SARS to the government institution. The letter will confirm whether the foreign entity is liable to be registered for tax in South Africa.
