NB: SARS is currently still issuing tax clearance certificates in hardcopy format. However in future they will only be issuing a PIN. The PIN will enable the person to whom you submit the tender to check in real time whether the entity is in good standing. As soon as SARS implements the new system, UCT will apply for a PIN.
It is important that the correct bank account is selected. This is dependent on the purpose for which you are making the deposit. View the list of Bank Accounts.
