I've recently registered as a VAT Vendor. I now have to submit VAT returns so I registered for SARS eFiling last week and faxed through the form as well as my ID to SARS to file online. According to the website this should be activated within 24 - 48 hours. Its now 4 working days. When I called SARS they said I should submit my return manually. The problem is its passed the deadline for 25th. How do I avoid interest and penalties.

You should take the proof of fax, go into SARS and ask them to submit the return and request that penalties are not charged for the reason you gave me above.
