The simple answer is that you can’t. SARS no longer issues Tax Clearance Certificates (TCC) and the reason is pretty obvious. They were valid for 12 months provided you kept your tax affairs up to date. If you didn’t, then you would be sitting with a document that looked fine but was invalid.

So now, what you get is a PIN, which you pass on to the customer who asked for a TCC. They can then go on to efiling, enter your Tax reference number and the PIN and see whether your tax affairs are up to date.

Your tax practitioner will get your tax affairs up to date and then apply for the PIN.


    1. In order to obtain a Tax Clearance Certificate, all tax affairs must be up to date. Please speak to Tumi 011 805 0030 and she will advise you how we can proceeed.

      1. Hi Sizwe,
        Our fee for the first one is R1 600. Once you pay (see our website for banking details), we will transfer your efiling to our profile and appoint you as the representative. If your tax affairs are up to date, we will then issue the Tax Clearance.
        If there are returns outstanding, we will quote you to bring them up to date.

    1. Hi Shaun,
      If you mean a tax clearance certificate then we have to appoint a Representative before your tax affairs can be brought up to date (if they are late). Thereafter, provided the Representative has been appointed, we can obtain the clearance.
      If you simply mean a certificate of registration, that was issued to you when you first registered and is not re-issued. However, any correspondence from SARS will have your name and tax number on it and that is proof of registration.
      My staff can help you. 011 805 0030

    1. Hi Mpho,
      This is now a more complicated job than previously. Firstly, we have to appoint you as the company representative at SARS. That costs R1 000
      Then the tax affairs of the company must be up to date. We can quote to submit any outstanding returns once we get to this point.
      Only then can we apply for a Tax Clearance. That costs R1 600
