Which registered details can be changed via eFiling?
If you are an eFiler, you can change selected sensitive detail changes such as bank details and name / surname or registered name, in the cases of companies and trusts, on eFiling. If the validation of your banking details is unsuccessful on eFiling, you will be requested to visit a SARS branch to validate your banking details in person. Registration number/ID number will be locked and updates to these fields can only be done at a SARS branch. Remember to make an appointment.
