There is an AP34 on my efiling 'main page' that shows an amount owed to SARS for 'ITR12 non-submission 2010'. I requested an account statement and the balance on the statement is R0. Now I don't know: do I or don't I owe SARS money? All my returns are currently up to date - I had outstanding returns last year, but got a bookkeeper to get everything up to date. She submitted all the documents requested by SARS after disputing a revised assessment of 2010 - the dispute was allowed, all penalties reversed and a refund made. The only thing 'outstanding' is my 2013 return.
The account statement and the AP statement are unfortunately different, you need to pay this amount or else SARS will not release any future refunds to you. However this AP34 could relate to the disputed 2010 return and now not be relevant. I would call 0800 00 7277 to check which is the case.
2013 is still in filing season so it would not be related to that.
