You can change and update your physical residential and postal address on the RAV01 on the SARS Maintain Details Tab on eFiling. You can use the following steps to update your details:
  • Login to SARS eFiling
  • Click on Home -> SARS Registered Details -> Maintain SARS Registered Details.
  • Click on 'I agree'.
  • An “Adobe” form will open up showing your SARS Registered Details. If you do not see the Adobe form, you will probably need to get the latest Adobe plugin working in your browser. You can also try logging into eFiling on a different web browser - like Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox or Safari. If you cannot in any way get this form to load, please call SARS on 0800 00 7277.
  • Click on the relevant tab to update your physical residential and postal address on the menu on your left.
  • You will need to follow the various steps involved from there to add your latest personal details and then click save and then Submit Form.
What follows is a verification process. SARS will either notify you immediately that your physical residential and postal address details are ok, or they will tell you that you need to come to your nearest branch to verify your details. They may also send you an email sometime later about verifying your details. There is also a chance that you will not hear from them - if you are unsure of the status of your stored details you can try logging into eFiling again in 24 hours' time and following steps 1 - 4 above, or phoning SARS on 0800 00 7277. Tell them that you have recently changed the SARS Maintained Details section of eFiling and want to know if the details are verified.
