Reminder: AEO webinar tomorrow

29 November 2023 – SARS will be hosting a webinar on Thursday, 30 November 2023, on the automation of the Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) application process. See the RLA for AEO application webinar presentation here.

In line with Strategic Objective 6: Modernise our systems to provide digital and streamlined online services to enable traders to meet their obligations simply, easily, and anywhere, SARS is pleased to announce that a digitised and streamlined solution to assist prospective AEO accreditation applicants to submit electronic applications for AEO accreditation on a user-friendly electronic platform will be available from 8 December 2023.

The digitisation of the AEO application process will provide traders with:

  • a streamlined application process for AEO accreditation through the implementation of an automated RLA platform for AEO;
  • enhanced self-service functionality that empowers traders to manage their own registration and licensing profiles; and
  • increased accessibility to the AEO programme through a digitised application process that eliminates  excessive paperwork, making it easier for traders to become accredited AEOs in line with SARS Strategic Objective 2: Make it easy for taxpayers and traders to comply with their obligations.

The webinar will provide further insights into this new application platform and the end-to end process of AEO accreditation application.

As an important stakeholder, you are invited to join the webinar, and you may also extend the invitation to other interested parties.
