  2. The eFiling service provides the eFiler with the ability to access, conclude, deliver, receive and read electronic filing transactions.
  3. When the eFiler submits a return, as defined in the Act, in the form of an electronic filing transaction to the eFiling service, the eFiling service forwards the return to the relevant tax system and, within a reasonable time, by return electronic filing transaction, confirms to the eFiler, on their electronic filing page, whether such return has been accepted and processed by SARS.
  4. In case of a payment to SARS through the eFiling service, provided that the eFiler has complied with all the prescribed procedures for making such payment, the eFiling service will store an electronic filing transaction, containing a record of such payment on the electronic filing page of the eFiler. To enable this functionality, SARS co-operates with various banks (“SARS’ banking partners”), who on instruction from the eFiler concludes the payment. The electronic filing transaction is merely a record of such payment. The arrangement for payment to SARS is between the eFiler and the SARS’ banking partners. Although SARS’ banking partners take reasonable steps to secure payment information and use payment systems that are sufficiently secure with reference to accepted technological standards, SARS shall not be liable for any claims, losses or damages suffered by the eFiler in respect of such arrangement.
