Conveyancer for Transfer Duty

All Conveyancers need to register with SARS as a Conveyancer.
 

How to register as a Conveyancer?

If you are a Conveyancer and not yet registered with SARS, you can register as follows:
 
  • You must have an eFiling profile, by that we mean that you must be registered for eFiling.
  • If you don’t have an eFiling profile, create the profile through the existing eFiling profile registration process.
  • Once your eFiling profile is created, login and navigate to the Services menu on top of the screen and click on ‘Conveyancer Registration’ from the side menu.
  • On clicking on ‘Continue’, a blank RC-01 form will be displayed.
  • Complete and submit the form.
  • After submission a letter of confirmation will be displayed. A print button will be available to print the confirmation.

How to update your registration details?

If you are a Conveyancer and you are registered with SARS, you can update or change your registered details as follows:
 
  • Login to your eFiling profile, navigate to the ‘Services’ menu on top of the screen and click on ‘Conveyancer Registration’ from the side menu.
  • Click on ‘Continue.’ Your existing details will be retrieved and displayed on the RC-01 form, including your conveyance number.
  • You may change or update the details on the RC-01 and submit the form.
  • After submission, a letter of confirmation will be displayed. A print button will be available to print the confirmation.

How do I complete the form?

Step 1: You can capture new details or update the pre-populated details on the form.
Step 2: You must add the name of a controlling body you belong to in the relevant text box.
Step 3: You must tick the box ‘Are you a member of the Law Society in South Africa’ and provide a membership
            number. Both fields are mandatory.
Step 4: The conveyancer must accept the declaration with the following text:
 
  • I do not have a criminal record
  • I am tax compliant
  • I have a LLB degree (or equivalent)
  • I am registered with the Law Society
Step 5: On completion, the form can be submitted by clicking in the submit button.
 

Supporting documents required for change in banking details in respect of Transfer Duty

Please note that if you change your banking details, you will be requested to provide supporting documents to be uploaded on eFiling or handed in at a SARS branch. The types of supporting documents include:
  • Copy of a Trust deed together with the minutes of a meeting specifying who is authorised to act on behalf of a Trust.
  • Power of authority.
  • Valid original or a temporary identity document/passport/driving licence of the Representative taxpayer.
  • Copy of a bank statement with the original bank stamp or ABSA eStamped statement not more than three months old that confirms the account holder’s legal name, account number, account type and branch code, where applicable. The only exception would be a case where a new back account has been opened and 3 months bank statements are not available. In such cases a letter stating the account holders legal name, account number, account type, branch code and the date the bank account was opened should be provided on the banks letterhead with the original bank stamp.
  • Copy of a proof of business physical address.
