I would just like to know is a refund audit quicker than the 60 days SARS gives themselves? I was audited and requested to send supporting documents the audit was complete and when I called in the call centre agent said all audits have been complete, it is now at the refund department and they give themselves another 60 working days to pay out. So my question is are they normally quicker when it comes to this 60 working days?
The audit can take up to 60 working days to complete. However, once you receive the "completion letter" payment should be made in a couple of days provided SARS has your latest banking details on record and that you are up to date with all your prior tax filings.
