All companies with a annual payroll of more than R500 000 needs to pay a skills development levy of 1% of their payroll. These levies must be paid to SARS via the EMP201 document.

In order to become a participating company the company must comply with the following:

  • Ensure that SARS is paying the levies to the correct SETA that represents the sector that the company do business in
  • Submit an Annual Training Report and Workplace Skills Plan to the SETA
