In a bid to achieve its Vision 2024, the South African Revenue Service (SARS) has announced a significant upgrade to its eFiling system. The upgrade, scheduled for Friday, 23 June 2023, from 18:00 to 23:00, is part of SARS’s strategic objectives to modernise its systems and provide digital and streamlined online services.
A Vision of a Modern, Trustworthy SARS
SARS’s Vision 2024 is a blueprint for a smart, modern organisation with unquestionable integrity that is trusted and admired. Central to this vision are the digital platforms and technology infrastructure that SARS employs. The organisation is committed to providing clarity and certainty, making it easy for taxpayers and traders to comply with their obligations, and building public trust and confidence.
To achieve these goals, SARS’s technology assets must demonstrate the highest levels of availability, robustness, and security. This commitment to excellence is the driving force behind the upcoming eFiling system upgrade.
Enhancing Digital Services
The upgrade is part of SARS’s ongoing efforts to ensure that its digital platforms and technology infrastructure are available, robust, and secure. By performing regular upgrades, enhancements, and maintenance, SARS aims to provide a seamless and secure online experience for its users.
While the upgrade is in progress, users may experience intermittent service interruptions on the eFiling platform. However, these temporary disruptions are a necessary part of the process as SARS works to improve its services.
A Step Towards a Better Future
The upcoming upgrade is a clear indication of SARS’s commitment to its Vision 2024. By investing in its digital platforms and technology infrastructure, SARS is taking a significant step towards becoming a modern, efficient, and trustworthy organisation.
As SARS continues to innovate and improve, users can look forward to an enhanced online experience that is not only user-friendly but also secure. This commitment to digital excellence is sure to cement SARS’s position as a trusted and admired entity in the years to come.
For users of the eFiling system, the temporary inconvenience of the upgrade will be a small price to pay for the improved services and enhanced security that will follow. As always, SARS remains committed to serving its users and making it easy for taxpayers and traders to fulfil their obligations.
