Discontinuation of Debit Pull

Please note that from, 1 OCTOBER 2013 you will no longer be able to make any payments on behalf of clients using the debit pull method.

The only two options available to make payments will be the following:

1.       Set-up credit push transactions on e-filing

Log in to e-filing and set up the banking details for credit push transactions. The client then has to get a code from their bank and send it back to us to load on e-filing.

With every payment the client will then have to log in to their internet banking to release the payment during business banking hours.

 2.        Internet banking payments

 Clients can log in to their internet banking and select SARS from the public recipients. It is imperative that they use the correct reference number when using this method of payment.

Also please note that payments must be made on the 25th or last business day before the 25th of the month for VAT payments.
