I was employed in South Africa from Jan'2011 till 1st Aug'2013 (relocated to USA). I have filed my tax in 2011 and 2012.

Now I filed my tax return for 2013 through eFiling with all supporting documents. Post submission, I got an original assessment which showed me a credit of (ZAR -37,000); however it was also selected for audit and today after a month, there is another version of IT34 uploaded which shows an amount of (ZAR 820) which I need to pay to SARS. They have also mentioned that this IT34 doesn't show any amount calculated in previous assessment and that my statement balance is now (ZAR 37000 - ZAR 820 = 36,180).

Just wanted to check if I need to make a payment of ZAR 820 or if SARS is going to deduct this ZAR 820 from original assessment amount of ZAR 37,000 and will credit my account with ZAR 36,180.
Your reply will be highly appreciated.

SARS will offset the amount and pay you the difference.
