Get your tax clearance certificate online

SARS will launch a new system which will enable South Africans to request their tax clearance certificate online.

The new “full enhanced Tax Compliance Status (TCS) system”, which will be launched on 18 April, will enable South Africans to:

  • Request their Tax Compliance Status online via eFiling. This will include a unique PIN which they can provide to a third party who is able to verify their tax compliance status either via eFiling or at a SARS branch;
  • Print a Tax Clearance Certificate (TCC) via eFiling if their tax compliance status request is processed and they are tax compliant;
  • Request their Tax compliance status via a SARS branch and receive a PIN or if required request a printed TCC where the SARS agent will be able to print or email the TCS PIN or TCC to them.

“From now until 18 April, you still need to follow the existing TCC process as indicated on this page,” SARS said.
