28 May 2021 – Third Party Data Providers have until Monday, 31 May 2021 to submit their annual Third Party Data Returns that includes the associated data files and declarations [IT3(b), IT3(c), IT3(s), MED, INS, FTI].
Third Party Data Providers are urged to make timely submissions, as incomplete, late or non-submissions may be liable for penalties and would impact your respective clients. It is of crucial importance that data submissions are first time around complete and accurate as this data is direct inputs into the SARS processes that include pre-population and auto-assessments of tax returns. These data submissions are enabling our ability to offer a seamless service and experience to taxpayers (your clients) in line with our objective to make it easy for taxpayers to comply with their obligations.
It is encouraging to convey that 90% of the required Third Party Data submissions have been receipted as at 16:00 on Thursday, 27 May, and we would like to thank those Third Party Data Providers that made their submissions well in advance of the due date.
Should you experience any challenges while making your submissions, you are welcome to contact us by emailing SARS Third Party Data Support ([email protected]). For more information, see the Third Party Submission Platform webpage.
