Please note: If the item you want to dispute is not available for selection, you unfortunately will have to lodge the dispute at your nearest Branch Office. This is a known issue and we are working to address the problem.

14 October 2016 – Enhanced Dispute management process for VAT

On 14 October 2016, SARS implemented an enhanced dispute management process for Value-Added Tax (VAT) on the electronic platform. The improved system will enable VAT vendors to lodge disputes via eFiling and electronically at any SARS branch, manage their tax profiles better and also have a consolidated view of all lodged disputes for PIT, CIT and now VAT.

The benefits are:

  • Ability to lodge disputes electronically via eFiling or at SARS branches (including Request for Remission, Notices of Objection, and Notice of Appeal)
  • Ability to view all dispute correspondence, and where applicable upload supporting documents
  • Taxpayers will have a consolidated view of all their disputes lodged across core taxes on eFiling
  • Outcome letters for Request for Remission (RFR) and Notice of Objection (NOO) are conveniently available on the taxpayer’s eFiling profile
  • Receive updates on dispute outcomes via eFiling for Request for Remission and Objections lodged
  • Ability to dispute multiple periods on one form up to a maximum of 12 periods
  • Ability to submit disputes will be based on the user submission rights.
