Please note an updated version of e@syFile™ Employer, version 6.2.2, is now available for downloading. This version addresses the challenges that certain employers faced when synchronising their third party appointment (AA88) data on e@syFile™ Employer version 6.2.1.

This updated version also has further enhancements to the AA88 function and will assist employers to easily receive, manage and pay their AA88s to the South African Revenue Service (SARS) and ensure accurate display of individual AA88 details.

For those employers that did have challenges with the previous version simply follow the following steps:
1. Update your software to version 6.2.2:
-You will automatically be prompted to update when accessing e@syFile™ Employer
-Download version 6.2.2 of e@syFile™ Employer from SARS eFiling or alternatively call the SARS Contact Centre on 0800 00 SARS (7277).

2. Synchronise your software again to rectify any previously inaccurate data displayed.

For more information visit, call the SARS Contact Centre on 0800 00 (SARS) 7277 or visit your local SARS branch.


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.
