A value added tax 262 (VAT 262) form needs to be in place for us to raise a zero-rated VAT invoice - Only applicable to "direct temporary imports".
Please Note: If you are not using a shipping company and plan on delivering the parcel to our offices in person (or via a colleague, friend, office in S.A. or any other indirect means) then this would not be applicable and we would have to issue the invoice including VAT as this would NOT constitute a "direct temporary import". The VAT portion of the invoice, in this case, can be claimed at customs when leaving the country.
- You (or your shipping company) must complete Part A on the VAT 262 form in quadruplicate (4 x copies).
- Download the VAT 262 Form
- Do NOT place the VAT 262 form inside the box as the form needs to be stamped by the South African Revenue Services (SARS) when the parcel enters the RSA and again on exit (SARS keeps the original).
- Once the data recovery is complete, we complete part B of the form so that on re-export, SARS can acquit the parcel (your recovered data) of Value Added Tax (VAT).
