Changes to the current version of e@syFile™ Employer became effective on 11 February 2013. The updated e@syFile™ Employer version 6.2.1 is available and can be accessed by:

  • Visiting the SARS eFiling website and downloading version 6.2.1 of e@syFile™ Employer. You will automatically be prompted to update when accessing e@syFile™ Employer.
  • Calling the SARS Contact Centre on 0800 00 SARS (7277) or visiting your nearest branch to place your order for your e@syFile™ Employer CD.

The updated e@syFile™ Employer software includes the following enhancements:

  • A version blocker, which requires all users to upgrade to the latest version which is version 6.2.1. Any information submitted to the South African Revenue Service (SARS) using a previous version of e@syFile™ Employer, will not be accepted until you have upgraded to the latest version 6.2.1.
  • The Third Party Appointment (AA88) function has been enhanced and assists users to easily receive, manage and pay your third party appointments to SARS.

Please note: The updated e@syFile™ Employer version 6.2.1 for Macintosh will be available at a later date.

Note: It is important to always backup the current Employees' Tax (PAYE) information on your computer prior to updating the e@syFile™ Employer software or installing a new version as the installation may delete the current information.


Section 240A of the Tax Administration Act, 2011 (as amended) requires that all tax practitioners register with a recognized controlling body before 1 July 2013. It is a criminal offense to not register with both a recognized controlling body and SARS.


The Act requires that a minimum academic and practical requirments be set to register with a controlling body. Click here for the minimum requirements of SAIT.
