This is how you can get your tax clearance certificate online

If you are emigrating, investing large sums offshore, bidding on a tender, or simply need to prove your good standing with the taxman, you will need to use the Tax Compliance Status service on the eFiling portal of the South African Revenue Service (SARS).

According to SARS, whether you are a business or an individual, you will, at some point, need to provide or confirm your tax compliance status with another entity.

Formerly called the Tax Clearance Certificate, SARS launched a new online system in 2016 that allows taxpayers to verify their good standing with the Tax Compliance Status (TCS) service.
 
Does it really have to be so complicated?

It's really not that complicated. What I can't believe is the number of ads I see on Facebook offering the service of getting your tax clearance certificate for you on your behalf from SARS (no doubt for some ridiculous fee) when it literally takes 5 minutes to do it yourself in Efiling.
