SARS is conducting a survey with companies about the type of economic activity they are engaged in, here in South Africa. The information will help align the South African classification system with the International Standard Industry Classification (ISIC) for Government planning and policy purposes. 


Companies will be selected randomly to voluntary participate. We’ll be calling to ask help with the following:

  • Background information of the business. Please have the Company Registration number and Value-Added Tax (VAT) or Corporate Income Tax (CIT) reference number ready so we can confirm the company. 

Please note: This data will never be linked to the survey responses; it’s merely to make sure that SARS is talking to the right company.

  • The economic activity of the business in the last financial year.

It’s a telephone interview and will take no longer than 10 minutes to complete.

Participation in the survey is voluntary and not linked to your company profile and any views expressed won't be attributed to you or your company.

For more information please contact the SARS Call Centre.



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.
