SARS Dispute Days
Perscription Calculator

It appears more than three years have not yet lapsed from the date of the assessment in question and as such you are likely still able to initiate your dispute via objection - please continue. If you have already initiated the dispute and you are post the objection phase of your dispute (for example you are in the appeal phase), please ignore this message and continue. 

Kindly note that the assessment in question may be older than three years or will soon be older than three years. Chances are you will not be able to initiate a dispute via objection. kindly note that this is not a reference to prescription but rather to the three-year cut off rule in section 104(5)(b) of the TAA. It is recommended that you consider the effect of section 104(5)(b) on your dispute, if any.  If however, you have already initiated a dispute and are in the appeal phase of your dispute already, please ignore this message and continue.
