Does your company need a VAT number? We can help you apply for one. Companies that have a turnover of less than R1 million rand per year can voluntarily apply for a VAT number. Companies that have a turnover of more than R1 million per year, are obliged to register for VAT.

Documents needed

  • Company documents (COR14.3)
  • Bank statements for one month
  • Proof of address for all directors less than one month old
  • Proof of address for the company less than one month old
  • Invoices made out to the amount of R50 000.
  • ID copies of all directors

The application is done electronically on eFiling. Secondly we visit a SARS branch to complete the application and receive a VAT number. This process takes about a week, depending on the availability of documentation and a SARS appointment. After the registration is completed, a VAT return has to be submitted every second month.
