Upgrade of the SARS Digital Platform from 15 to 17 June 2023

14 June 2023 – Achieving our Vision 2024 of a smart, modern SARS with unquestionable integrity that is trusted and admired is of paramount importance. Pivotal to the delivery of our vision are our digital platforms & technology infrastructure. In order to provide clarity & certainty, make it easy for taxpayers & traders to comply with their obligations and building public trust and confidence, our technology assets have to demonstrate the highest levels of availability, robustness and security.

Pursuant to our Vision and Strategic Objectives, which include modernising our systems to provide Digital and Streamlined online services, we are hard at work ensuring that our digital platforms & technology infrastructure are available, robust & secure, by performing regular upgrades, enhancements, and maintenance.

In light of the above, SARS Systems upgrades are scheduled for:

  • Thursday 15 June from 22:00 to Friday 16 June 03:00,
  • Friday 16 June from 22:00 to Saturday 17 June 02:00,
  • Saturday 17 June from 15:00 to 21:00.

During this time, you may experience intermittent service interruption on our eFiling and Customs Digital Platform.

Stakeholders are therefore urged to submit priority Goods Declarations (bills of entry) and Road Manifest by Thursday 15 June 2023 @ 18h00.
