Q: I need to register my client for PAYE and want to make sure the correct method for registration is used. There are 2 methods available but I’m unsure what the best method to use is.

A: The new single registration process rolled out by SARS allows taxpayers already registered for income tax to additionally register for PAYE via eFiling. 

Please see the 2nd and 3rd bullet points of this SARS link for confirmation:

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.
