What are automated assessments by SARS?

From August, SARS will be providing certain taxpayers a new automated assessment without the need to file a tax return. This means tax returns will be completed automatically on behalf of the taxpayers using third-party information.

The new automated assessments have 5 easy steps:

1: Employers and third-parties submit required and correct data to SARS by end of May 2020

2: SARS uses the relevant data to identify taxpayers who can be auto assessed

3: SARS auto-assesses the taxpayer and issues an SMS to the taxpayer with the results

4: Taxpayer logs onto eFiling or SARS MobiApp and accepts the auto-assessment results

5: If the taxpayer does not agree with results of the auto-assessment, they may edit and resubmit their income tax return starting 1 September 2020.
