The following details are needed to verify a taxpayer’s details at SARS:
* ID book, If a ID card is used, copies of both the front and back of the card.
* Bank statement not more than 1 month old. The transactions should be less than a month, not the stamp on the statement.
* Proof of address.
The following documents can be used to verify address:
* Municipal account
* Valid rental agreement/contract
* Cellphone account
* Retail account
* TV license
* Home loan statement
* Medical aid certificate less than a year old
Also note that none of the documents need to be certified. All documents have to be scanned, photos taken with a cellphone never prints clear and therefore can’t be used.
