Tax payers must take note where tax payments and return submissions are still required.


  • There is no relief for the payment of assessed taxes and payment must be made on the due date
  • Where a taxpayer is unable to make the payment, or can only do so partially, a request for a deferred arrangement during the lockdown period must be sent to the dedicated email addresses made available by SARS. 


  • There has been no relief outlined for late VAT payments – there will thus be late payment penalties and interest imposed on any VAT payments made after their due dates.


  • There is no relief for the submission of tax returns
  • Taxpayers must therefore ensure that returns are submitted on or before the due dates.


SARS will have staff available at the SARS Contact Centre on
0800 00 7277.

If you need to interact with SARS, you may also use online
channels such as : eFiling, SARS MobiApp and e@syFile
