A registered eFiler can act in different “roles” on eFiling (e.g. tax administrator). These “roles” are referred to as Portfolio Types. For example:
- Individual – a person acting as himself/herself to administer his/her own individual taxes.
- Tax Practitioner – a person registered with SARS and a Recognised Controlling Body (RCB) and has a signed power of attorney to act on behalf of another taxpayer.
- Organisation – a representative of a tax paying entity acting either as the representative taxpayer (e.g. Public Officer, Executor of an estate, etc.) or an appointed representative with a signed Power of Attorney in place.
