How to set up a credit push SARS payment?

Starting 4 September 2013, debit pull transactions on eFiling will be phased out and discontinued. This process will take place over a month. A warning message will appear on eFiling, where a debit pull transaction is no longer available. You are encouraged to perform credit push transactions or use one of our alternative methods of payment.

We have managed to obtain procedures for facilitating the credit push payment transaction from the following online banking platforms:

  • ABSA Cash focus
  • Investec
  • Capitec
  • Standard Bank
