Group executive of business solutions Intikhab Shaik allayed any confusion and fears from the public over the Sars e-filing system.

South African Revenue Service (Sars) group executive of business solutions Intikhab Shaik has allayed any fears from the public over the organisation's Sars e-filing system and says the the state of IT infrastructure at Sars is operating optimally.

Chief Officer of Digital & IT, Mmamathe Makhekhe-Mokhuane appeared before the Nugent Commission on Wednesday after an interview on SABC's Morning Live, where she failed to answer questions around the state of the IT infrastructure at SARS.

In the interview Makhekhe-Mokhuane said the department was not well resourced.

Shaik says they are averaging around 25 000 returns per day.

Throughout the filing season we have processed over 3.3 million returns of which 54% have come through our e-filing system which I think is phenomenal.

Intikhab Shaik, South African Revenue Service (Sars) group executive of business solutions

I am quite confident that the Sars infrastructure is working extremely well right now and we are well prepared for the deadline on the 31st of October.

Intikhab Shaik, South African Revenue Service (Sars) group executive of business solutions

To be quite categoric, the Sars IT infrastructure is operating optimally right now. Our e-filing system is 100 percent up.
