A company must be registered with the Company Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) to obtain a registration number.
The company will then be registered automatically as a taxpayer. A company which does not hear from SARS after registering with CIPC, must contact their nearest SARS office.
We will contact SARS on your behalf.
If a company is not yet registered with SARS, they will, for security reasons, need to do their first-time registration at a SARS branch. They will not be able to register for the first time via e-Filing.
Depending on other factors such as turnover, payroll amounts, whether involved in imports and exports etc, a taxpayer could also be liable to register for other taxes, duties, levies and contributions such as Value Added Tax (VAT), Pay-As-You-Earn (PAYE), Customs, Excise, Skills Development Levy (SDL) and Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) contributions
