How to Register your Company for SARS eFiling

We'll show you how to register a company profile on eFiling

To create your company profile you will not need to have a separate profile for it anymore. SARS has now created a shared platform.

To set up a new eFiling profile for a company you will need to ensure that you have all your valid documents ready to use during the process. 
You will need the following:

1. Name of the company
2. The address and contact number 
3. The SARS tax number 
4. The registration number 

STEP 1: Get started by logging in

Go to

Type in your unique username and password - you will have decided on these when you registered for eFiling.

If you previously used a tax practitioner or tax firm to file your company tax returns, you must request your SARS eFiling login details from them - they belong to you. See how to get back control of your SARS eFiling profile
