eFiling is a platform offered by the South African Revenue Service (SARS) that lets taxpayers submit their tax returns and make tax payments online. This is how SARS payment and eFiling are related.
When taxpayers use eFiling, they can pay their income tax, value-added tax, provisional tax, and other taxes online safely. You can use a debit or credit card, an electronic funds transfer, or the SARS eFiling payment gateway to make a payment.
eFiling is a quick and easy way for taxpayers to pay their taxes, including payments related to SARS obligations. So, eFiling is one way to make a payment to SARS if you need to.
What is an unallocated payment?
An unallocated payment in the context of the South African Revenue Service (SARS) is a payment made by a taxpayer that cannot be matched or assigned to a specific tax liability or account.
For example, if a taxpayer makes a payment without giving a reference number or any other information that lets SARS know which tax account or liability the payment is for, the payment will be treated as unallocated.
How is SARS payment allocated on eFiling?
On SARS eFiling, allocating payments is easy. You need to log in to your account, click the payment tab, make a payment, and confirm the details before sending.
Allocating payments on SARS eFiling is easy and only requires a few simple steps.
- Sign in to your SARS eFiling account and click on the “Payments” tab to get started.

- Choose the account you want to pay into. This could be a tax type, a tax period, or a specific tax reference number. You might also have to choose how you want to pay.

How do I request payment allocation from SARS?
To get payment allocation from the South African Revenue Service (SARS), you will need to do the following:
- Log in to eFiling or go to a SARS branch with all of your supporting documents.
- Fill out and send in the Request for Correction of Tax Return (RFR) form.
- On the RFR form, give information about the payment you want to allocate and the tax period for which you want the allocation to be made.

Does SARS refund unallocated payments?
The South African Revenue Service (SARS) could give back payments that taxpayers made but didn’t use. This can happen when a payment is made but not put toward a specific tax period or liability. SARS will try to match the payment with any outstanding debts and return any money that is more than what is owed.
