Tax Clearance Certificate

 

A Tax Clearance Certificate is a document that is issued by the South African Revenue Services (SARS). It validates your status as a taxpayer and confirms that your tax matters are in order at the date of issue. This is very important, especially if your business is planning to enter into a business contract with a large corporation, or apply for a government tender.

 

Please note that recently, SARS have enhanced the tax clearance system and have introduced the TCS system. Once a tax clearance application has been approved, SARS will issue an overall Tax Compliance Status (TCS) and PIN, as well as a Letter of Goodstanding. This enhanced system allows anyone with your unique Pin to verify your Tax Compliance Status online via eFiling. SARS will issue a TCS result letter, as well as the Letter of Good Standing in the pdf format which can be used for official use.

 

In order to apply for a Tax Clearance Certificate, the following requirements have to be met:

  • The tax payer must be registered and have a tax reference number (e.g. Income Tax Reference Number)
  • The tax payer must have no outstanding debt for all taxes
  • All returns must be up to date
  • No duplicate TCCs will exist, except where a current TCC will expire within 2 months

In order to apply for a Tax Clearance Certificate, the following documents and information is required:

  • CC/Company documents (if applicable)
  • Certified ID copies of sole propriety and/or member/director
  • Income Tax Reference Number
  • Contact details of tax payer

A Tax Clearance Certificate (TCC) is valid for 12 months from date of issue. Once it has expired, you will need to apply for a new one. A new Pin will be issued for each request that is made. SARS has 21 business days following the submission of an application to issue or decline a Tax Clearance Certificate and that, to be on the safe side if you’re in a hurry, the full period should be allowed for. To avoid your application being declined you will need to be 100% sure that your tax affairs are in order.

 

Once your TCC application has been approved, you will receive Tax Clearance Certificates via email and/or post.
