Tax Compliance Status Application (formerly Tax Clearance Certificate)

A Tax clearance status pin is an official number issued by SARS that is used to confirm if a specific individual or entity’s tax affairs are 100% in order. 


What is a Tax Compliance Status and Pin?


A Tax Compliance Status and Pin is an official number that is issued by the South African Revenue Services (SARS). It validates your status as a taxpayer and confirms that your tax matters are in order at the date of issue.


If your business is planning to enter into a business contract with a large corporation or apply for a government tender, having this pin is a standard requirement.

Once SARS has determined that all your tax affairs are in order, SARS will issue you with a pin number. This pin number allows anyone in possession of it to confirm your tax compliance status online via eFiling.


SARS will send your pin by SMS and as a downloadable pdf document with full details on the requested compliance status.


Some important items to note.


  • A Tax Clearance Status Pin is valid for 1 year from the date of issue.
  • You will need to apply for a new pin number once the year has passed.
  • SARS issues a new pin for each compliance request that is made.
  • SARS has 21 business days following the submission of an application to issue or decline a Tax Clearance Status Pin. 
  • Be 100% sure that your tax affairs are in order to avoid unnecessary delays.
