Tax clearance information and verification

By Werner van Rooyen

The information below is straight from the latest Government Tenders:

From 1 November 2014, the paper-based tax clearance certificates (TCC) issued by SARS will be gradually phased out and replaced with an electronic Tax Compliance Status (TCS) system. The system allows for the online real-time verification of a person’s tax compliance status. From 1 April 2015 SARS will no longer issue paper based tax clearance certificates.

Any person who requires his or her tax compliance status to be disclosed to a Government institution or department, for purposes of submitting a bid or to confirm its good standing after the phasing out of paper based TCCs must request a unique security personal identification number (PIN) from SARS.

Very important to note is that the disclosure of a bidder’s tax compliance status is an express condition for all acceptable Government bids. Failure to make the relevant disclosures will invalidate your bid and your response will be null and void.

The Government institution or department must use the PIN referred to above (after implementation of the new system) to verify a person’s tax compliance status with SARS. Remember that bids that are submitted in the transitional period may be accompanied by a valid original paper based tax clearance certificate, however successful bidders who are awarded contracts on a paper based TCC must warrant that they will, on request by the Government institution or department, provide a PIN for the Government institution or department to verify their tax compliance status.

To learn more about this and many other tender conditions please attend one of our tender workshops. Tender Workshop dates are published on our website at www.how2tender.com.

Happy tendering.

7 Disadvantages of Competitive Bidding

The bidding process can be very tedious sometimes. Here are some of the disadvantages of the bidding process.

1.    Leading suppliers may not tender

In Australia, for example, government procurement guidelines only allow suppliers who actually tender to be considered for a procurement decision. If the leading supplier or suppliers do not tender, the purchaser can only consider bids from suppliers who do tender.
