I just had my voluntary sequestration of estate approved by the high court on the 24th of March 2020 and I now need a new tax number. SARS say I can do that through SARS eFiling and I would like to know how I can do this? The problem I have experienced with trying to register a new SARS eFiling profile is that after I input my name and ID number the system tells me to login with my existing profile number.

You can register a new SARS eFiling profile and during this process SARS should issue you a new tax number. This is because your SARS eFiling profile is linked to your ID number. However, it sounds like you will only get a tax reference number when you physically go into a SARS branch and apply for a new tax number. Please just ensure that you take your documents with you when you do visit the branch. Please take a look at our blog here: How to get a tax number
