Are your SARS details up to date?

Make sure everything is up to date for a hassle-free filing experience.

This year from 1 July 2024 we will again issue auto-assessments to taxpayers whose tax affairs are less complicated.  If you are in agreement with your auto-assessment, then there is no need to ‘accept’ the assessment. If a refund is due to you, it will automatically be paid into your bank account.

Before 1 July 2024, check that we have your correct bank details and that you still remember your eFiling username and password. 

Follow these easy steps!

Do you still remember your login details?

If you forgot your username or password, or both, don’t despair, you can reset it easily.

If you have forgotten your username:

  1. Go to the Forgot Username webpage.
  2. Complete the relevant information and follow the prompts.

If you have forgotten your password:

  1. Go to the Forgot Password webpage.
  2. Complete the relevant information and follow the prompts.

If you forgot both your username and password (don’t worry, it happens!), follow the Forgot Username process where-after it will prompt you to reset your password, if needed.

My security contact details have changed?

The forgotten username or password will trigger an OTP to your security contact details on the system.

To make sure we still have your correct email address and cell number, login to sarsefiling.co.za and click on ‘My Profile’ on the top left of the screen.

If one of the security details has changed, you can update it here on the screen, but if both have changed, you will need to call the Contact Centre on 0800 00 7277 or visit a branch, remember to make an appointment first.
