The issuing of the printed SARS Tax Clearance Certificate (TCC) is terminated from Monday, 4 November 2019. Since the new Tax Compliance Status (TCS) system in 2015, we advised that the printed TCC will be stopped at a future date. All TCCs currently in circulation will be cancelled. The TCS PIN enables you to authorise any third party (an organisation or government) to view your status online via eFiling. It will present your overall tax compliance status at the date and time of viewing it. To protect taxpayer confidentiality, no other info will be accessible to a third party.
In our continued effort to improve compliance and to make it even easier for taxpayers to manage their tax affairs, the South African Revenue Service (SARS) has introduced an enhanced Tax Compliance Status System.
Being tax compliant and ‘paying your fair share’ is not just good for you, but also contributes to the positive growth of our country’s economy which in turn benefits all South Africans.
The TCS system is available for the following applications:
* Good standing
* Foreign Investment Allowance
To apply for your TCS, you can access the TCS system by selecting the TAX STATUS menu option on eFiling or by visiting your nearest SARS branch. Should you have any queries, please contact the SARS Contact Centre on 0800 00 7277.
