Hi Tim, I'm trying to wrap up my tax return but your system has a check on branch code length and is not allowing me to enter the one that is on file at SARS - 51001 which is an ITB number and which I use all the time. I don't have time to go into a SARS branch to change this to my specific branch's code so I would appreciate if you could assist. I'm stuck at the "Finalise your tax return form" with the "Please enter a branch number of at least 6 characters. " error.

Please try using the universal Stand Bank branch code of 051 001

Thanks for that. Seems the SARS eFiling system removes the 0 at the front and then a mismatch occurs. Appreciate the help!
