In response to your blog entry "What?%u20AC%u2122s the delay with getting my SARS Refund?". When and how does SARS become liable to pay interest on late refund payments? Surely there must be a mechanism to keep SARS honest when it comes to keeping our money and delaying our refunds?

Unfortunately there is no interest earned on refunds as they fall within the SARS process. Interest accrues when money is overpaid to SARS upfront - so like a provisional overpayment or VAT overpayment.
