Changing of banking details on my incom tax return?

Just been introduced to your page and I realised that its so helpful. Thanks for the good webpage.
My question is, I have changed my personal bank account which in return will have to be changed on my tax return when it opens on the 1st July 2013.

My worry is, is this going to affect the turn around time for SARS to process my returns. Should I request the change now before the return date or rather wait until July?

I would suggest changing the bank details now. SARS often asks for proof of the change and this means you have to go into a SARS office to make the change in person so it is best to do it early.'
