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
