ONE must receive complete and correct Shipping Instructions (SI) before the advised SI Cut-off date and time to successfully complete its submissions to SARS. If, due to late SI receipt, ONE judges that submissions cannot be completed on-time (latest 24 hours prior loading at each loading port) cargo will not be loaded. You can contact your local customer service representative for the exact SI cut-off. In order to avoid cargo not being loaded on vessels destined to South Africa, you should take the necessary action to ensure timely SI submission.
SARS has also revised the grace period where penalties will not be levied against filing parties till 31 October 2018.
If you have any questions, please contact your local ONE office.
