Customs Letter to Trade – Discontinuation of General Codes – Extension

Jun 22, 2022 | Uncategorised

22 June 2022 – We previously advised that SARS, in consultation with the South African Express Parcel Association (SAEPA), the South African Association of Freight Forwarders (SAAFF), and the Air Cargo Operators’ Committee (ACOC), have agreed to discontinue the Non-Registered Cargo Reporter Code “ZZZ99999” from 1 June 2022, and the Ex Courier Code “000” from 20 June 2022.

SARS has received requests to allow an extension to give cargo reporters additional time to register, complete their systems development, and ensure that changes are made to their operational processes to accommodate these measures.

As SARS is committed to working with and through stakeholders to increase tax compliance, the expiry date in respect of both the above codes will be extended to 31 July 2022.
