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.

    Goodday.

    I just want too find my tax certificate with my tax number on.
    Tax number:1284321179
    THANK YOU.

    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
      If you want to take this further with us, please drop an email to tumi@harbourassociates.co.za and she will assist you.
