Please note that going forward, appointments will only be made for practitioners who are registered with both with SARS and a recognised controlling body. If you are still in the process of finalising your registration with SARS, kindly submit your proof of registration with a recognised controlling body to the office where you wish to make your appointment. Practitioners who have finalised their registration will be verified electronically via their Practitioner Reference number. 

Please click here to view the SARS Guide on How to Complete the RAV01 form, which provides specific guidance on how practitioners can manage their SARS registration details on efiling.


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.
