A Tax Clearance Certificate is a written confirmation from SARS that shows a Company is legally tax compliant in South Africa. The Certificate proves that your company has no bad debt at SARS and that your Tax submissions are up to date.

You’re probably here because you’ve noticed that when applying for Tenders, whether they’re Government or private, they require you to submit a Tax Clearance Certificate.
That’s because both Companies and state institutions want to know whether you’ve paid all your taxes to SARS. To them, a business that’s up to date with its tax payments is a business that’s trustworthy, credible and good to work with.
If you’ve avoided paying all your Taxes, it’s impossible to get a Clearance Certificate. The term implies that you get the certificate for having a “clear” account with SARS.
Only SARS can issue Tax Clearance Certificates. Your accountant or a fast-tracked company service provider like us can assist you by communicating to SARS on your behalf.
Applying for a Clearance certificate could cost you hours for having to stand in long queues (if you do it at a local SARS branch and not online) or when you struggle to figure out all the documentation that needs to be submitted.
An easier way to obtain your SARS Tax Clearance Certificate is via one of our experts. We only need 24 hours (as soon as we have your EFile profile). With our service (as shown above) you get a designated Tax Clearance expert.
Our experts know precisely what documentation you need and how they need to be submitted to SARS not to waste time. We can assist you in getting your Tax Clearance Certificate in record-breaking time.
Luckily this expert-service is actually cost-effective, easy and it helps you save hours. So far, we’ve helped thousands of South African businesses with their Clearance Certificates. You can be located anywhere in South Africa or the World.
You can go directly to SARS eFiling website or go to your closest SARS branch.
If you want to follow the easiest and fastest way it would be helpful for you to use our fast-tracked SARS service. We only need about 24 hours to get you your Tax Clearance Certificate.

Yes, you probably do need a Tax Clearance Certificate when you apply for most Tenders. You’ll most certainly need it to apply for Government Tenders and large Private Tenders in South Africa.
As stated in the previous question, a Tax Clearance Certificate is proof that you are in good standing with SARS and no company wants to team up with a business that doesn’t pay their taxes.
Although the cheapest would be to register directly with SARS, it can be very time-consuming (and time is money!) to do everything yourself. This is especially true if you need a few documents to ensure you’re eligible for a Tax Clearance Certificate.
That’s why it might be more economical, when you take your time and energy into account, to use our fast-tracked Tax Clearance Service. We are ready to assist you – call us Toll Free on 0800 007 269 (free to dial from Cellphones and Landlines).
If you already have a business, but you haven’t registered it as a Pty Company yet, your business will automatically be considered a Sole Proprietor business.
That means you’re already paying tax on your business earnings, just along with your personal tax. That means if your general income is more than R75 000 a year, you’ll have to pay Personal Income Tax.
When you decide to register your business as a Pty Company, or whichever Company Structure you prefer, you’ll pay taxes on your Company as a separate legal entity and different taxation percentages apply.
If you have a Pty Company rather than using the default Sole Proprietor structure it’ll simply mean there will now be a distinction between your personal taxes and your company’s taxes – which is a great thing. This implies there’s a distinction between you and your company’s debt, so when something goes wrong business-wise, you might be more protected in terms of your personal assets. That’s why it’s smarter to register your business as a Company.
In terms of when you’ll pay tax, you’ll pay tax as soon as you earn income (unless it’s less than R75 000 a year).
You will also not be able to gain the tax benefits for SME companies should you be a Sole Proprietor.
No, you can’t. There is no legal way to avoid tax.
There are only smarter ways to do your finances so you don’t pay unnecessary tax.
