Streamline SARS IT3d Third Party Data Submissions

Are you tired of the time-consuming, error-prone process of manually preparing IT3(d) forms to SARS for your PBO’s Section 18A tax certificates? You’re not alone.

PBOs find it challenging to handle the submission process and ensure that data conversion is accurately done, especially those with limited resources or technical knowledge. They run the risk of making costly errors that may put their tax-exempt status and relationships with donors in danger.
