SARS eFiling Explained

eFiling was introduced by SARS in 2004 with a primary goal in mind: to simplify the process of manual tax submissions by replacing it with a secure, online facility.

With eFiling, tax payers no longer have to stand in long queues to submit their tax returns or for various other SARS transactions. Tax payers simply log onto the Internet, create a secure online SARS user account and they can perform various tax transactions such as registration, submission of forms, tax returns and payments amongst other things.

The eFiling tax service is available to anyone, from businesses, tax practitioners to individuals, and is absolutely free of charge.

Ever since the SARS eFiling service entered the market 10 years ago it has grown from strength to strength, and has shown tremendous popularity amongst users. Almost 2 million individuals submitted tax returns via eFiling in 2008 and over 7.5 million businesses and practitioners submit their returns via the Internet each year.
