SARS Tax Administrative Penalties

These penalties will automatically increase every month that the taxpayer fails to comply. The penalty will be limited to a maximum of 35 months. If SARS is not in posession of the taxpayers current adress the period will be increased to 47 months.

Penalties may be waived by SARS if a taxpayer can provide good reason for non-compliance.
