The Corporate Income Tax (CIT) is a tax imposed on companies resident in the Republic of South Africa.

The South African Revenue Service (SARS) is South Africa’s tax collecting authority responsible for issuing CIT numbers [1]. Businesses can receive multiple tax numbers from SARS such as CIT, VAT, PAYE etc., however CIT is the preferred identifier to be used. [2] Businesses that receive CIT numbers include public and private companies, co-operatives, universities, trusts, governments and embassies.
