Customs tax due this week


The South African Revenue Service (SARS) has reminded taxpayers to settle their tax and customs payments as well as their tax and customs debt to the revenue service by or on Thursday this week (28/3).

“Tax payments can be made via a bank, electronic funds transfer (EFT), via eFiling, or the SARS MobiApp. Customs payments can also be made at any SARS customs office,” SARS said in its statement.

The revenue service also reminded taxpayers to be cognisant of the time when making payments. “It is important that taxpayers and traders perform the payment transaction during business hours to authorise their banking institutions to release the payment to SARS – a required step if the payment is made via eFiling and the MobiApp,” the SARS statement read.

Balance enquiries can be made by requesting a statement of account on eFiling, the SARS MobiApp, or by SMS to SARS on 47277.
