Must I go into SARS to register bank details?

Hi TaxTim,

I have submitted my tax return for this season and I am owed a refund by SARS.
I have never filled in my banking details before as have only been working for 1.5 years now. Must one always go into a SARS office to register bank details if one hasn't been asked? Or can I simply do it on efiling and only if they request me to go in, then I should?

Finally, if I am required to take all the banking documentation into a SARS office, can I do it when tax season is over? Or must I do it before the 21st of November?

Thank you!

You can do it when tax season is over, you do not have to do it this week. It is not an annual thing, only when SARS requires you to do so which should hopefully only be once.

Thank you so much! You have saved me a day of waiting in the queue. :)

Only a pleasure! Have SARS specifically requested you to go in with the banking proof?

No they haven't asked me directly, but from what I read on the SARS website, I got the impression one had to do it at some stage, just wasn't sure when.

Not until they actually ask you, which hopefully is never!
