Numerous members brought it under SAIT’s attention that the override function on eFiling is no longer available when requesting a client to be transferred from one tax practitioner to another tax practitioner’s profile. This operational problem resulted in tax practitioners being unable to transfer clients to their profiles where the current tax practitioners did not authorise the transfers. 

The SAIT escalated this issue to SARS at a head office level for further investigation and the Institute is delighted to inform its members that the override function has since been reactivated and is fully functional.

Override code in progress. It has been in progress for more than a week without getting the override code. What could be the problem?

Why does it take more than 2 days to obtain a taxpayer override after requesting it? SARS should also introduce functionality to request a transfer immediately after uploading a client in cases where clients are registered e-filers but are unable to log on because they have forgotten their log-in details. very few people document their steps when attempting to register as e-filers. A TP should be able to check with SARS whether the client is a registered e-filer and be able to request an override immediately, since the client is unable to log on to authorise the transfer. Please escalate this. Thanks.

This is all good and well, but what if a tax practitioner have a cleint transferd to his profile with out the concent of the cleint himself and where the current tax practitioner made the comment for not authorising the transfer seeing that the cleint did not authorise it.



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.
