Follow the steps below to accept a tax type transfer request on the SARS eFiling website:

  1. Go to the link: https://secure.sarsefiling.co.za/app/profileTaxType/taxTypeActivation

  2. Select the correct option where it asks "Are you a South African citizen?"

  3. Enter your Identification Number

  4. Enter your company income tax number under "Tax Reference Number"

  5. Click Submit and it will take you to a page that says "Approve Online Request"

  6. Select either email or cell number and click "ok"

  7. Enter the OTP sent to your preferred contact method and click "submit"

  8. This will take you to the "Tax Type Transfer" page which asks you to give permission to the requester.

  9. Click "authorize" next to each tax type

  10. Click the "submit" button to complete the transfer request.

Having trouble? Check the following:

  • Make sure you enter your company income tax number and not your personal income tax number. You can find your company income tax number under the "profile" section of your Govchain dashboard.

  • Only the SARS registered rep can accept the transfer. If you elected another director as the SARS registered rep then they will need to do this.

  • If you immigrated to South Africa, try to select the non South African option for the citizen and enter your ID number.
