A tax clearance certificate is a written document from the South African Revenue Services (SARS) to confirm that a specific entity or individual is up to date with its tax returns and that all are paid up to date. You would need at least an income tax number to apply for a tax clearance certificate.
The following taxes can be included on such a certificate :
- Income tax
- Employees tax (PAYE)
- Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF)
- Value added tax (VAT)
You would typically need this certificate for clients or new tenders or contracts. The certificate is valid for a 12 month period.
Some important things to keep in mind when you apply for a tax clearance :
- All taxes need to be up to date
- The tax affairs of all the directors of the entity must be up to date as well
- The registration details (the registered name of the entity) on the TCC application must correspond with the information at SARS.
By completing the form below, you will automatically receive a discounted fee of only R 600 (Vat excl) for a Tax clearance application.
