As part of our service to you, Tax Debt Relief provide you with a Tax Clearance Certificate. In order to issue a Tax Clearance Certificate, you cannot have any outstanding debt with SARS, or you need to have an arrangement with SARS that SARS deems acceptable. Once we have helped you with a SARS Debt Compromise or a SARS Installment Payment, you will receive a Tax Clearance Certificate.
The tax clearance certificate is the official document issued by SARS to confirm that the applicant has their tax affairs in order. These certificates are not just incredibly important for your everyday business but they are also required by those who are looking to apply for tenders, as the certificate proves that they clear with their taxes when they are trying to bring in foreign investors.
The SARS tax clearance certificate is controlled and enforced by the Tax Administration Act which sets out the requirements and time frames associated with the issuing of these certificates.
Tax clearance certificates are also known as TCC’s and when they are applied for, specific reasons for the application are a necessity. Each year the certificate will need to be renewed, seeing as it is only valid for one year from the date of issue. Its validity can be removed by SARS should the taxpayer not continue to be compliant with the terms of the certificate. SARS is entitled to withdraw the certificate at any time should it have been issued in error or should fraud or misrepresentation have led to the issuing of the certificate.
You don’t have to handle any of this process on your own. Instead, you can enlist the services of a qualified and experienced team, such as ours. We will analyse your situation and be able to determine if you will qualify based on the conditions set out by SARS.
